Aha Moment: Lydia Mendoza

Feature

Thursday, September 07, 2006

Alyssa Lamb sings in a Brooklyn-based band called Las Rubias del Norte, 'the Blondes of the North.' But her path to singing was circuitous-she was playing the accordion when an injury kept her home alone. She found her calling by singing along with the powerful voice of Lydia Mendoza, a legend of Texas-Mexican music. Produced by Trey Kay.

I heard the melodica portion on NPR radio of the song Corazon, Corazon, and went out and bought the album along with a melodica. I would love to get sheet music for that song. Can you tell me how and where I can get it?

Thanks in advance for any reply.
