Nelly Furtado has a plan: conquer Latin America

Canadian singer-songwriter, Nelly Furtado is planning a return. We last heard from Ms. Furtado a few years ago with her monster album, Loose that Timbaland produced album that shelled out nine hit singles. One would think Furtado would release a similar album, albeit a sequel-keep-the-mainstream-happy record, but we here at Mí Casa trust Ms. Furtado and she’s instead planned on taking over Latin America. Word on the street last year was that Furtado was working on a double album, one in English, the other in Portuguese. However, if her several collaborations with Columbian pop-rocker, Juanés, Puerto Rican alternative hip-hoppers, Calle 13, and most recent Flo Rida‘s latest are any indication of her musical direction, it’s her first Spanish language album, aptly titled Mí Plan. Mí Plan first single is “Manos Al Aire” (“Hands in the Air”) released on June 29th. The rest of her new album boasts collaborations with Mexican alt-rock legend Julieta Venegas, Spanish hip-hopper, La Mala Rodriguez, and Bronx-Bachata masters, Aventura, Josh Groban, Vincent Garcia, and of course, Juanés. Nelly Furtado’s Mí Plan will be released on September 29th on Universal Music Latino.

The Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC) kicked off Tuesday evening and goes on throughout this week in NYC. El Niño Diamante y Don Palabras wished they could partake in the festivities and rub elbows with industry changos, but alas, we sit in front of our computers and share, talk, and move you with the music we love. The New York Press has an brief interview with Argentine born, New York City transplant Federico Aubele. Aubele talks about his new record, Amatoria and his collaborations with Cibbo Mato‘s Miho Hatori and Brazilian Girl’s Sabina Scuibba.

This year the LAMC celebrates its 10th anniversary and sees performances by Columbia’s Aterciopelados, la Venezuelan gozadera de Los Amigos Invisibles, Argentine singer-songwriter, Juana Molina, Puerto Rican hip-hoppers, Calle 13, as well as lesser known acts such as La Oveja Negra, Curumin, and Maluca. This week’s festival is a chance for artists, industry moguls, and music fans alike to converge and celebrate Latino music.

We’ll try to keep you posted on all things LAMC 2009!
