Natalia Lafourcade (born Natalia Lafourcade Silva on 26 February 1984 in Mexico City, Mexico) is a Mexican pop singer and songwriter. In 2005 she released Casa, her second CD, but this time as Natalia y La Forquetina (the name of her band). Since she was very young, Natalia had a great interest in music, partly because her parents were musicians. At three years old she began to sing and at four, she realized that she wanted to be an artist. She attended Instituto Anglo Español, a Catholic middle school.
