With Luna Negra and the Daughter of the Sun, Lisa Morales draws from a creative palette informed by the rhythms, colors and flavors of the Southwest, painted-desert skies of her native Tucson, Arizona, where she and cousin Linda Ronstadt grew up, to Houston, where she moved at 18, and San Antonio, where she now lives.
On each of its 11 tracks all but one of which were written by Morales with lyrics sung in English, Spanish and Spanglish.
Producer Michael Ramos (Patty Griffin, John Mellencamp) also played accordion, trumpet and keyboards. The album features guitarists Charlie Sexton (Bob Dylan), Adrian Quesada (Grupo Fantasma, Prince) and David Garza (Juliana Hatfield, Fiona Apple). Los Lonely Boys bassist Jojo Garza and Los Lobos drummer Cougar Estrada are the core band. Both Garza’s provide backing vocals. “Avalanche,” is a standout duet with the late Jimmy LaFave and on “Strong Enough,” folk icon Eliza Gilkyson provides backing vocals. On “Pena, Penita, Pena” Morales plays classical guitar with lead guitar by David Pulkingham (Patty Griffin) and Michael “Cornbread” Traylor on bass. Though Morales, who discovered the song while her mother was dying of cancer, imbues it with sadness, she makes it sound like a gentle serenade — and reports proudly that when she played it for her cousin, Linda Ronstadt responded, “I would have definitely recorded that!”
Morales recorded six albums as one-half of the duo Sisters Morales prior to her solo debut, Beautiful Mistake in 2012
