Natalie Lafourcade @ SFJAZZ Center: MEXIAM Festival

Natalia Lafourcade

A three-time Latin GRAMMY winner and the most celebrated singer to emerge from the Mexican pop scene in recent years, Natalia Lafourcade presents the West Coast premiere of material from her new album,

Hasta La Raíz. A beguiling young vocalist who brings an irresistible sense of joy to her music, Lafourcade is equally at home with modern radio-friendly pop and more folkloric settings that highlight the depth of her expressiveness. Born in Mexico City to the family of a music school founder, she had melody coursing through her veins from the beginning, deciding on her career by age four. Studies at Mexico’s Fermatta Music Academy and Boston’s Berklee School led to a deal with Sony Music and her self-titled 2003 debut release, a GRAMMY nominee for Best Latin Pop Album that featured her first worldwide hit, “En El 2000.”

Following the platinum selling, rock-focused 2005 release Casa and 2009’s more experimental Hu Hu Hu, Lafourcade returned with Mujer Divina: Homenaje a Agustín Lara, a heartfelt tribute to the beloved artist whose career spanned seven decades and totaled over 600 compositions. Lafourcade’s new release, Hasta La Raíz, meaning "to the root," was inspired by her recent travels throughout South America, and stands as her most personal set of songs to date.
