Live at TONY: Ximena Sariñana tantalizes in two tongues

The Mexican singer-songwriter and actor charms a captive crowd.

Ximena Sariñana, 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 Sariñana, 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), 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.

Here's Ximena Sariñana singing the title track from her 2008 debut album, Mediocre. (You'll find a useful translation of the lyrics here.)
