Mexican Folk Artist Natalia Lafourcade Returns to San Antonio

One of the key ingredients in Mexico’s alternative music is its ability to organically embrace native sounds and rhythms with those of a “foreign” origin (as far as we’re concerned, at this point an electric guitar is as much a part of Latin American folk as the so-called “Spanish” guitar).

First with her band La Forquetina, now as a solo artist, tiny Natalia Lafourcade is a vocal powerhouse and academically trained, all-around multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter who jumped from rock en español to Mexican folk with equal credibility. The winner of nine Latin Grammy awards (10, if you count the Long Form Music Video win for her gorgeous two-volume Musas from 2017-18, the follow up to 2012’s Mujer Divina and 2015’s Hasta la Raíz) and one Grammy, Lafourcade comes to San Antonio on the heels of her folk-oriented success, but we hope she can squeeze in some of her early rocanrol gems as well.

No matter what she brings, her brand of sophisticated but accessible alt-pop can be dug by anyone.

$48-$78, Tue May 15, 8pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s, (210) 812-4355, theaztectheatre.com.
