Soulful Mexicans


Just heard on Twitter that the 1st song “Besame” (Kiss Me)  is doing really well on the charts & I had heard talk about it before, but just hadn’t gotten around to listening to it. I finally listened to it and it’s really good, very romantic song.  Once again Camila makes it on to the blog with this live performance of the song. These guys are so talented! They’re brilliant composers and awesome musicians. Song number two is a song I found and knew instantly I had to share. This girl’s got some killer vocals. She’s classy, she’s jazzy what a mellow and soulful vibe.  Hope u have a romantic evening & ENJOY!

Mexican Pop Culture Icon to Cross Over


The iconic Mexican classic, a show near and dear to Mexicans, a total household name “El Chavo del Ocho” franchise is set to expand yet again. It all started with a live action comedy show back in 1971 , in 2006 an animated series ” El Chavo Animado” was released. The cartoon was produced by Roberto Gómez Fernández, son of writer/creator of  “El Chavo del Ocho” Roberto Gómez Bolaños. Gómez Fernández decided on the project as an homage to his father’s famous work, also he wished to pioneer one of the first animated series made in Mexico, based on a TV program.

The series consists of 100 episodes, and on August 26 will be entering its 4th season.  It is on the top 3 list for channel 5 on which it airs, competing with top contender Sponge Bob who has one of the best ratings among children’s programs. Now, an English version of animated “El Chavo” is next on the horrizon. 52 dubbed episodes are in the works, set to premier next year. The show’s staff are hard at work with colaborating voice over talents, and writers in figuring out just how to transmit that special, unequivocal “El Chavo” magical brand of entertainment. Due to cultural differences the staff is working on how to modify jokes, and adapt them for their new audience.

Lots of great stuff in store for the thriving franchise, the wide and positive response from the animated series gives way to an upcoming video game, set to be releases sometime in December. Along with an the release is an  El Chavo musical show set to open in December as well. The video game will be a  Nintendo DSi title with 52 mini games or “missions”. For the upcoming season: the show started with episodes based on storylines from the original live action series; the new season promises never before seen episodes and in HD.

Mexican Online Radio


I recently ran across a great webpage that has a list of links to all kinds of  radio stations from all across Mexico.  Keep up with latest news, en vogue music, find fun variety programing,you can even listen to university radio stations, & much more!  Whether you speak Spanish and are looking to keep in touch with what going on with Mexico, or are learning Spanish and looking for a cool and fun way to sharpen your listening/comprehension skills, or maybe you just want to learn about a new culture or get into a new type music . Or if you’re Mexican & want to keep up with the latest in your state, or  hometown… etc  Here is your fix my friends!

The link is:

http://www.mexico-radio.com

Ok, Once you are on the page, you will find a list on the left side(it will be under the bright orange button that says Mexico). This  is a list of all the Mexican States A-Z. Once you click on a state a list of all the stations that belong to that state will drop down. *To listen to Mexico City radio stations click on  “Distrito Federal” first, then “Cd. de Mexico” (which stands for Ciudad de Mexico= Mexico City).  After you choose the State & city you want to listen to, a list with the different media player(windows, real, iTunes, “otro” = other) options will appear in the middle of the page.  Clicking “Web” is the easiest, because it automatically directs you to the radio station’s webpage & that will most likely have a media player already broadcasting. This won’t work for all so you might have to fiddle a bit & choose a  media player that’s right for you. If a connection is down, or there’s some compatibility issues, don’t despair keep trying or switch to another station , the choices really are plentiful & it’s not that hard to get it going in a matter of seconds.

Ok ,well hope you guys finds this post : cool, informative, and helpful. ENJOYNESS MUCH!!  =)
