I just read a story about Mon Laferte, the current most listened to Chilean singer on Spotify, exposing her breasts at the Latin Grammys the other day in protest against the Chilean government/police.
Her album Norma
(which is her real first name) apparently won the Best Alternative Album category. I don't really listen to Latin music, but naturally, as soon as I heard the word "alternative," I had to go straight to YouTube to see what she sounded like. The first video I watched was this one, Caderas Blancas. I was immediately entranced by her beauty and her lovely, soft voice.
I then listened to Funeral, a softer, more mellow song. I love the mix of the acoustic guitar and the horns in the background.
is actually a pretty darn good album with a lot of variety. I highly recommend it if you're looking for an interesting change of pace and are even remotely interested in this style of music. She's done a few other albums, at least one of which, Desechable
, is described as a rock album. I definitely like the cover art.
I'll have to do a deep dive when I get some time, but so far, the early returns are looking good!
