EDITORS’ NOTES

Having trimmed most of the synths and samples from 2015’s Hasta la Raíz, offbeat Mexican singer/songwriter Natalia Lafourcade gets truly intimate on the hushed and haunting Musas. Collaborating with Los Macorinos, a virtuoso guitar duo who spin impossibly gorgeous melodies throughout, Lafourcade once again blends dreamy indie pop (“Te Vi Pasar”) with swooning bossa nova (“Soledad y el Mar”). But she also strips her style down to the acoustic essentials, building many arrangements around her angelic voice and little else. Always charming, occasionally heartbreaking, Musas is another unexpected twist from a deceptively sweet and decidedly ambitious artist.

Una joya de belleza simple, pero bien pulida💎

Escuchandolo esta mañana repare en el clima politico en diferentes paises, y que mejor antidoto y arma contra montruos racistas y demagogos, que mostrar la belleza de nuestro lenguaje y nuestra cultura latinoamericana.
Siento a Natalia en toda plenitud artistica!
BRAVA, y gracias, Natalia🌺

A true musical gem

Just when I thought Natalia Lafourcade couldn't top the Grammy-winning album Hasta La Raíz, she surprises us with this masterpiece. Hands down the most talented artist Mexico has to offer. Do yourself a favor and purchase this album; listen with headphones on for the full experience.

Natalia!!

A true musical genius! She gave us her "Pet Sounds," her "Sgt. Pepper" with "Hasta La Raíz" whatever she has in store for us next will only be a well crafted piece of art! ❤️❤️
