info 

The New York-based guitarist, singer and songwriter Cecilia Villar Eljuri, who performs under the name Eljuri, compulsively fuses genres in a way that’s not entirely unusual for a Latino musician. She is, however, rather unusually a Latina rocker and electric guitarist, going back to her roots in various Latin styles after starting out as a rocker. On La Lucha she shows off her love of the Cuban tres – a small guitar with six strings arranged in three pairs of two – using a custom-made electric model that she designed herself. She also delves into ballads, reggae and a bit of Santana-influenced rock en español. The title means “the fight” or “the struggle,” a phase that has been used to refer to the civil rights battle for Latinos. It’s also part of “lucha libre,” the Mexican-based pro wrestling style that is wildly popular throughout the Spanish-speaking Americas – the album’s cover art reflects lucha libre‘s style and colors.
