Coco has beautiful mexican music, and you maybe liked it, If so, maybe you should listen to this playlist.

The Artists:

PEDRO INFANTE

Ernesto de la Cruz is based on him. He was an actor and singer. He is considered an idol of the mexican people. Together with Jorge Negrete and Javier Solís, were styled as the Tres Gallos Mexicanos (the Three Mexican Roosters).

JORGE NEGRETE

Another mexican idol. He was kind of a genius: he spoke six languages: Spanish, German, English, French, Italian, and Nahuatl. He started singing on the radio and bacame a legend. 

JAVIER SOLÍS

Great singer of boleros and rancheras. As Infante and Negrete, he became an actor. Solís died at the age of 34 in Mexico City from complications due to gallbladder surgery. Following surgery, his doctors had refused him water, and his last words concerned his thirst and imminent death: "They will have to shower my grave with lots of water. I know that I’m going to die. There is no cure.”

LUCHA VILLA

Singer and actress, but what a singer. She named herself “Villa” in honor of Pancho Villa.

She’s been around for 40 years, and is awesome.  Affectionately known as “The Queen of Ranchera Music”.
