    Carolina Mendoza, singer and songwriter from Mountain View, Arkansas, has been mentored by generations of traditional folk music performers in her short time. Her nickname, “Voice of the Mountain,” was bestowed on her for her rich, pure tones. Carolina’s signature sound combines her traditional Mexican roots, a deep influence of country, bluegrass, Nordic folk, and old-time Ozark music.
