Songs We Love: La Santa Cecilia, 'Ingrata' (Feat. Mon Laferte)
The latest stunner from La Santa Cecilia's visual album, Amar y Vivir, is "Ingrata," an interpretation of Café Tacvba, featuring Chilean pop star Mon Laferte.
The video was shot and recorded live from a rooftop overlooking the cathedral of Mexico City's (CDMX) historic district.By slowing it down, La Santa Cecilia lead vocalist La Marisoul and Laferte (whose " Amárrame " has been streamed more than 140 million times) bring out a beauty and emotion that was buried in Café Tacvba's irreverent approach to the traditional corrido.
They start the song with a slow ranchera style highlighting Laferte's pristine soprano voice, with its distinct inflections, followed by La Marisoul's deep and powerful alto. The harmony between the two singers that caps the song brings to mind the taste of a smooth and smoky mezcal while sitting in your favorite cantina.
