Mexican star Natalia Lafourcade will perform at the historic San Jose Civic in support of her new album De Todas Las Flores, which she debuted at Carnegie Hall in New York City. She will also be performing songs from across her Grammy-winning catalog.
De Todas Las Flores is Natalia’s first release of all new original material since her breakthrough 2015 album Hasta La Raiz.
“I kept myself very entertained by visiting all these genres and composers,” she says. “But then I felt an inner call that soon turned into a powerful need. In the midst of the pandemic, I realized that I was hiding from myself, which made me reflect and understand that I had to break the ice and return to the recording studio.”
The result of this search is De Todas Las Flores, a dazzling and deeply sophisticated collection of original songs that feature Natalia’s trademark compositional virtues — the unusual melodic turns, the affecting poetry, her lightness of touch — while also revealing a musical maturity that hints at a new step in her career. It was inspired by themes of vulnerability, life and death, the feminine, nature, the mystical, love and heartbreak.
De Todas Las Flores was recorded entirely to analog tape over twelve intense days in Texas. It was produced by the acclaimed artist Adanowsky, son of film legend Alejandro Jodorowsky. Natalia gathered a new band without rehearsals prior to the album recording, in order to give the music a raw and live energy. The studio band featured musicians from a wide variety of cultures and perspectives: New York guitar icon Marc Ribot, 20-year-old piano wunderkind Emiliano Dorantes, bassist Sebastian Steinberg (Fiona Apple, Soul Coughing) and French drummer Cyril Atef.
