Mon Laferte Reflects on Melancholy, Liberation and Mexican Popular Music Through Her Latest Album ‘Seis’

Born in Chile and resident of Mexico for fifteen years, Mon Laferte has the potential to understand the musical multiplicities of Latin America.

Mon Laferte and Gloria Trevi join forces on the stellar new song/video for “La Mujer”

Mon Laferte shares the stage with Gloria Trevi on the video for “La Mujer,” one of the singles from Laferte’s latest stellar album release SEIS. The video, directed by Rodrigo Robles, features Laferte and Trevi singing alongside one another on a “Latino couture” themed set that highlights the duo’s sisterhood and breaks free of some of the societal clichés that have been applied to feminism. And within that image of two women empowering one another (and not pitted against the other) lies the “pain, resurrection, and revenge,” that Trevi believes is reclaimed and used as a source of strength in the song.

The Latin Grammy-winning Chilean artist Mon Laferte relocated to Mexico about 15 years ago, and in the last two, found this Pueblo Mágico — or area of special historic and folkloric significance according to Mexico's tourism bureau. It's a fitting home for its quiet and potential for optimum solitude. About an hour-and-a-half from Mexico City, Tepoztlán is where Laferte wrote the bulk of SEIS, her latest album and her first expressly devoted to regional Mexican music, out today.
