Natalia Lafourcade is an innovative, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter from Veracruz, Mexico. Her music has roots in Latin America, yet contains elements of rock, jazz, pop, bossa nova and folk, drawing a major following in the Americas and beyond.
She has been acclaimed as “one of Latin America’s leading indie pop stars” (KCRW Radio), with a “shape-shifting, dynamically intrepid voice” (LA Times), “a finely calibrated balance of vintage and new sounds in her music” (NYTimes) and “masterful songwriting” in which “heartache has rarely sounded so uplfting” (Rolling Stone). Lafourcade was born in Mexico City, February 26,1984, but grew up in Coatepec, Veracruz into a musical family where her talent blossomed early. After some formal musical training, she began to write songs at age 16 and a year later signed her first record deal with Sony Music. Her debut solo album, Natalia Lafourcade (2002), topped the charts in Mexico and prompted a LATIN GRAMMY nomination at age 18 for Best New Artist. More critically acclaimed albums followed, including Casa (2005), Hu Hu Hu (2009), and Mujer Divina - Homenaje a Agustín Lara (2013). In 2015 Lafourcade released the breakthrough album Hasta la Raíz, which received a GRAMMY and 5 LATIN GRAMMYs. In early 2017 she released Musas, a tribute to Latin American folklore. In this intimate production containing both original and covered material, she is accompanied by the acoustic guitars of the Los Macorinos (Juan Carlos Allende and Miguel Peña).
