Mon Laferte & Gloria Trevi Bring Female Empowerment With Mesmerizing Performance At Latin GRAMMYs 2021
Like a match made in riot chica heaven, two of the most powerful female voices of Latin pop of past and present — Gloria Trevi and Mon Laferte — united for a captivating performance.
Donning golden embroidered mariachi garb that showed off her baby bump, Laferte was first joined by legendary ensemble La Arrolladora Banda El Limón. Powerful brass set the vibe for the heart-rending “Se Me Va a Quemar el Corazón,” before Laferte transitioned to the femme fatale cut “La Mujer,” backed by an all-female troupe, Mariachis Lindas Mexicanas.
Trevi made her grand entrance during "La Mujer," poised on a vintage couch and wearing an El Matador outfit filled with silver buckles. The mercurial Mexican icon made her Latin GRAMMY debut with the performance. Together, the Latin pop divas, who are both extremely prolific songwriters, repped female empowerment the whole way through.
During the Latin GRAMMYs Premiere Ceremony, Mon Laferte snagged the award for Best Singer-Songwriter Album for Seis, becoming the first female to win in the category. “Essentially, I am a storyteller. And I like to tell stories,” Mon Laferte told GRAMMY.com in 2019. “Music and the beat are very important, but more important is telling that story. Through my music, I open the window to experiencing a lot of other genres. Not only what's trending — maybe urban, maybe reggaeton — but also many other things that are happening within the Latin world.”
