La Bamba, sung by a Female Voice

The most unforgetable sung interpretation by a female voice of the traditional song "La Bamba" is unquestionable the version of Selena.


La Bamba - Lyrics

La Bamba - Selena live 1987

Of course, "La Bamba" is one of those collected and conserved traditional folk songs in the twentieth century, which are royalty and copyright free because they are traditionals with a far and uncertain origin like as example also "Guantanamera" or "Malaguena". These songs are not that difficult to learn on guitar because the chords and riffs are easy.

Joan Baez
La Bamba was one of the folk songs in the early recordings of Joan Baez.

Nana Mouskouri

Nana Mouskouri is also known to interpret traditional folk songs.

La Bamba - Live in Chili 1994

A fair and modern interpretation is given by Belle Perez, a Flemish singer/songwriter with Spanish roots, who mixes the song with the rock classic "Twist and Shout".
