Best: Natalia Lafourcade and Flor de Toloache lead fandango dance-off
Natalia Lafourcade is one of those delightful anomalies who has her feet planted on both the mainstream and alternative landscapes of Latin music. She's a modern-day folklorist with an indie rock past – to the appeal of multiple generations. The Mexican singer appeared onstage evoking a Thirties-era Frida-like figure: colorful, confident and charmingly fierce. Backed by New York alt-mariachi troupe Flor de Toloache, Lafourcade cooed to the vintage-styled balada of "Mexicana Hermosa," honoring the strong females of her native country. She then turns up the fandango alongside formidable bolero maestros Los Macorinos on the ravishing "Tu Si Sabes Quererme." Midway through the song, a bevy of superstar front-row seaters start shuffling in action – among them, the unlikely pairing of Alejandro Fernández and J Balvin.
