Eljuri – La Lucha (Manovill Records, 2016)
La Lucha (the fight) is the new album by Ecuadorian-American guitarist and songwriter Eljuri. Even though she’s described as a skilled rock guitarist, this album is primarily focused on Eljuri’s vocals raher than her guitar-playing ability. And while there are rock, reggae, bachata and dub influences, in essence, this is a pop album with lyrics in Spanish and English featuring pop vocal hooks and rhythms.
Eljuri plays a wide range of instruments including acoustic and electric guitars, electric tres, keyboards and percussion programming.
