Live at TONY: Ximena Sariana tantalizes in two tongues
Thu Jul 28 2011
Ximena Sariana, a Mexican singer, songwriter and actor who we first noted with a concise but admiring CD review in 2008, is on a serious roll just lately. Her second album (and first sung in English), simply titled Ximena Sariana, is building plenty of buzz ahead of its release by multinational major label Warner Bros. on August 2; currently she's on tour with fellow international-pop stars Sia and Oh Land. In town for two shows at Webster Hall (now concluded; see photos from the first night here), Sariana stopped by the TONY offices to serenade the masses with two stripped-down songs. The first, "Wrong Miracle," comes from the new album. Click past the jump for the title track from Mediocre, a debut album that was anything but middling in terms of tunefulness and charm.
