If you loved the sweeping ballads that are the signature sound of Los Temerarios, then Si Tu Te Vas

Marala is a young pop artist from Colombia and Por Aqui
is her debut album. For a sample of songs from her album, you can visit the Marsala website
or watch the "Por Aqui"
video to see the artist in action.
Speaking of Fresnillo, Zacatecas, here's an album by a singer from the same town, Javier Torres. Torres is best known as the leader of the popular Los Rehenes, but began branching out into solo albums in 1994. This one is for those who love Mexican ballads, grupero, banda, corrido
- well, Torres usually performs a little bit of everything Mexican.
It looks like El Chapo de Sinaloa's dreams of becoming a singing cowboy have come true - at least the 'singing' part. With his popularity waxing, he probably doesn't have much time to spend on horseback these days.
A live album by banda's Diego Rivas.
Musicians do a lot of interesting things with the tango
and this group from Buenos Aires is no exception. Their 2003 album Tangos de Liverpool
had a track list of Beatles favorites, converted to tango tempo and style. Tangoloco En Vivo
is a new live album; there's also a DVD of a live performance in Buenos Aires for those who crave a visual element to their music.
