Natalia Lafourcade unveils ‘A song for Mexico’

The Mexican singer Natalia Lafourcade unveiled her short film “Un canto por México, el musical” which continues a solidarity work that began in 2019 and has brought together the talent and work of various musicians.

“A song for Mexico is a collective voice, I like to say that it is like a tree of life (…) the song of joy but also of sadness, the song of love and heartbreak”, announce the first words of Lafourcade in the video.

Accompanied by Los Cojolites and more than twenty musicians and dancers, this is how the singer is observed in the short film that lasts more than 24 minutes that was released this Friday on YouTube.


The video begins with a series of images in which the protagonists of the musical pose static, while in the background the most Mexican version of his popular song “Never enough” sounds, which he has also covered with figures such as Los Ángeles Azules on other occasions.

This is followed by the instrumental interpretation of iconic themes of Mexican popular music such as “One Hundred Years”, popularized in his time by Pedro Infante, and it is on this theme that the singer’s voice is heard for the first time.

With “Tú si saberme” he lights up a visual and sound feast in which Lafourcade explores diverse Latin American rhythms that are also mixed with rap and dance, to later give a special space to Los Cojolites who perform their popular song “Sembrando flores” and his cry of protest “Nothing is true.”

In the rest of the video, new versions of songs are heard that have catapulted the singer as one of the most important on the national scene and as a representative of the country abroad, such as “Hasta la root”.
