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. Her work has been recognized with awards including ten LATIN GRAMMYs and one GRAMMY. Musical background Natalia Lafourcade was born February 26,1984 in Mexico City. She grew up in Coatepec, Veracruz surrounded by music, as both parents were professional musicians. Natalia's talent blossomed early, followed by lessons in guitar, piano and voice. At age 14, she joined the pop group Twist, and soon after she decided to study music formally. She began to write songs and at age 17 signed her first record deal with Sony Music. Recordings and recognition Her debut solo album, Natalia Lafourcade (2002), topped the charts in Mexico and prompted a LATIN GRAMMY nomination for the 17-year-old in the category of Best New Artist. In 2005, she formed a band, La Forquetina, and with them recorded the album Casa, produced by Emanuel del Real (of Café Tacvba) and Aureo Baqueiro, this time receiving the LATIN GRAMMY for Best Rock Album. After parting with her band in 2006, she composed purely instrumental compositions for an EP, Las cuatro estaciones del amor (The Four Seasons of Love) (2006), collaborating with the National Youth Orchestra of Veracruz. For her following material, she returned to solo work, writing original pop songs for the album, HU HU HU (2009). Natalia was featured on the 2011 album Travieso Carmesí, containing classic Mexican songs she had performed in concert with the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas. Inspired by the experience, she created Mujer Divina - Homenaje a Agustín Lara (a tribute to Agustín Lara) (2013), adapting a selection of songs by this famous composer from Veracruz, some presented as solos and others in collaboration with Miguel Bosé, Vicentico, Lila Downs, Jorge Drexler, Leonel García and other recording artists. The album won two LATIN GRAMMY awards: Best Alternative Album and Best Long Version Music Video. Two years later, her next album of original material, Hasta la raíz (To the Root), produced by Natalia, Cachorro López and Leonel García, enjoyed enormous popular and critical success, winning a GRAMMY in 2016 for Best Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album, and 5 LATIN GRAMMYs in 2015: Song of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Alternative Album, Best Alternative Song, and Best Engineered Album. In early 2017 Natalia released Musas, un homenaje al folclore latinoamericano en manos de Los Macorinos (Muses, a tribute to Latin American folklore in the hands of Los Macorinos). This album contains music by some of Natalia's muses - Latin American composers Agustín Lara, Maria Grever, Violeta Parra, Margarita Lecuona, and Atahualpa Yupanqui - as well as original songs. It received two LATIN GRAMMYs: Best Folk Album and Best Long Form Music Video. Natalia also recorded a mariachi-style version one of her songs from the album, Mexicana Hermosa, with Carlos Rivera. Additional honors highlights In addition to her Grammy awards, Natalia has received numerous recognitions for excellence, including MTV Latin Awards, an Indie-O award for musical production, recognitions from the Society of Authors and Composers of Mexico (SACM), as well as an award from the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) in 2016, honoring artists with extraordinary musical careers. In 2016-2017 she was invited to participate in the iconic PBS television program Austin City Limits in Texas, in special sessions for the Los Angeles radio station KCRW, and in a "Tiny Desk" session of National Public Radio. Performing highlights Natalia has participated in tributes musical greats such as Juan Gabriel, Caetano Veloso, Simón Díaz, José Alfredo Jiménez, Mecano, José José, Intocable, Luis Eduardo Aute and Chavela Vargas. She has sung duets with Pepe Aguilar, Juan Gabriel, José José y Gilberto Santa Rosa, among many others. In October 2017, Natalia performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, directed by Gustavo Dudamel, in a program featuring her music. For the celebration of the Mexican Bicentennial of Independence in 2010, Natalia was invited to perform classic Mexican songs along with Denice Gutierrez, Ely Guerra, and the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas, conducted by Alondra de la Parra. Throughout her career, Natalia has toured widely in México, the United States, Central and South America, Japan, Spain, Italy, and other parts of Europe. In 2015, her Hasta la Raíz concert in the legendary 10,000-seat Auditorio Nacional in Mexico City sold out. Her latest tour Musas included sold-out shows in historic theaters throughout Mexico, and also in the cities of Miami, Chicago, Washington, D.C., New York and Buenos Aires. Film, television, and musical production Natalia was featured artist in the song "Remember Me", of the Pixar Movie, Coco, released in 2017. Previously, Natalia sang on the soundtracks of El Gato con Botas (Puss 'N Boots) (2009) and the television series Locas de Amor (Crazy for Love). She collaborated on soundtracks for the films Amarte duele (It hurts to love you), Temporada de patos (Duck Season), and No sé si cortarme las venas o dejarmelas largas (I don't know whether to cut my veins or grow them long). She appeared in the 2012 film, El cielo en tu mirada (Heaven in your Eyes), directed by Pedro Pablo Ybarra, and in the documentary Hecho en México (Made in Mexico), produced by Duncan Bridgeman.
