Natalia Lafourcade is a Mexican music star with expansive musical roots. Musas, her follow-up to her Grammy-winning 2015 album Hasta La Raíz, blends original songs and inventive covers into an “emotional and graceful homage to Latin American music and songwriters” (Billboard). Vagabon, the project of Cameroon-born New Yorker Lætitia Tamko, is “an indie rock game changer” (Pitchfork). Each is a fearless triple-threat singer/instrumentalist/songwriter whose popular appeal matches her critical acclaim. While they come from different worlds, they both create lucid magic, with disarmingly candid lyrics folded into expertly crafted cadences that know exactly when to build and recede.
“Casts a spell with deep feeling, and melodies and lyrics that linger in the mind.”– Village Voice on Natalia Lafourcade
“One of indie rock's rising stars…in full possession of the infinity that comes from introspection.”– NPR on Vagabon
