vanessahatSan Antonio sensation Vanessa Del Fierro is the alt.mariachi chingona behind Las Coronelas, whose mega-viral David Bowie cover almost blew up POCHO’s servers this week.

Vanessa also stars as an immigrant-smuggling coyote in a new video for her original composition Mexican Train. It’s a love song; too bad she’s in love with the wrong vato. Extra firme oldies points for the doo-wop backup girls, the triplets feel, and the tubular bells. [Mas…]

Over the weekend, Mexi-Canadia’s The Mariachi Ghost dropped this awesome Halloween/DDLM music video, named The Marigold, after the distinctive flower of Dia de Los Muertos.

Pero Estamos por sacar nuestro primer video. Dirigido por uno de los mejores cineastas del mundo, Guy Maddin, con premios desde un Emmy hasta un oso de oro.
