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 Music: Music Video of the day


Haven’t posted an MV in a while. It’s definitely time for some music. =D

Song: El Aventurero(The Adventurer) By: Pedro Fernandez . The song talks about a flirtatious playboy who likes to capture hearts where ever he goes.  Wow there’s nothing as sexy as a gentleman in a charro outfit. Seriously testosterone overload totally drool worthy.  No? Ladies?

Here’s an few lyrics excerpted from the song:

“Be on your toes darlings for your adventurer is here my honeys!”

“I am “the adventurer” the world to me matters very little , when I like a lady… I like her no matter what.”

“I like ’em tall, I like ’em short. I like ’em skinny, I like ’em chubby, the single ladies the widows & like ’em divorced too.

“I am the adventurer and to all my “mothers in law” I propose: Do take care of your daughters if you bring ’em along or I won’t be held responsible!”

“I have a troubadour & bohemian’s soul,  I am honorable and a good friend, the most honest kidder.”
