Natalia Lafourcade is one of the most influential emerging Latin artists in the last twenty years. Since the age of fourteen, Lafourcade has been recording and releasing music that reflects her musical genius and youthful energy, exciting fans and garnering her award after award.
Lafourcade was born in Mexico City, Mexico into a family of famed musicians and writers. She began making her own music which quickly found success under the tutelage of Loris Ceroni, mixing pop with bossa nova, rock, and Latin rhythms, and giving Lafourcade the base for her unique sound.
Her first record produced Grammy nominations for Best Latin Pop Album and Best New Artist. Since 2004, Lafourcade has gone on to win eleven Grammy’s including Song of the Year for “Hasta la Raiz” at the 2015 Latin Grammy’s.
Lafourcade’s newest record, Musas, is filled with beautiful original melodies, and covers of classic songs from around the world. Lafourcade says recording Musas was a “life-changing” experience while others are calling it “an emotional and graceful homage to Latin American Music” (Billboard) and “soothing to the ear” (PASTE).
Lafourcade can most recently be heard on the official recording of the Oscar-winning, hit song “Remember Me” from the Disney/PIXAR film Coco.
