Music Bio:

Lara Manzanares is a bilingual singer-songwriter from northern New Mexico. In addition to singing the Mexican boleros, rancheras, and corridos of her sheep ranching childhood, Lara also composes her own music in both English and Spanish. Through a combination of storytelling and songs both playful and sincere, Lara draws on her New Mexican roots and her experiences living in various cities across the U.S. as she sings about love, loss, a sense of place - and the joy of eating cactus!
