mariachis,

Javier Solís, Jorge Negrete, Lola Beltrán, Pedro Infante, José Alfredo Jiménez, Rocío Dúrcal y Antonio Aguilar

This was at this mexican restaurant near my house. it’s so awesome i sit facing it every time i go.

if you’re not mexican and you celebrate cinco de mayo it’s fine, whatever, but if you celebrate cinco de mayo with sombreros and fake moustaches and fucking ponchos and shit go fuck yourself, it’s ok if you want an excuse to party and get fucked up without even knowing what the actual holiday is, but why do you have to mock the stereotype appearance you have given to mexicans lmao

First Listen: Flor De Toloache, 'Las Caras Lindas'
This foursome of Latino women weave jazz, classical, salsa, cumbia, folk, rock, country and hip-hop on the follow-up to their Grammy-nominated debut album.

These mariachis have moxie. They don’t just sing; they could blast through mountains with their wails and gritos (shouts), and melt glaciers with the warmth of their gorgeous harmonies (figuratively speaking, of course). And they don’t just play mariachi. Flor de Toloache also weaves an arsenal of styles into its new release, Las Caras Lindas (The Pretty Faces): jazz, classical, salsa, cumbia, folk, rock, country and hip-hop.

They also mean business. “It’s really cool to be an all-female group, and empower and inspire women,” says founder Mireya Ramos, “but at the end of the day we want to be known as badass musicians.”

Me: Hi, can I have ARTPOP P 2, the sequel to Telephone, the Edge of Glory video, the ARTPOP app, the SuperBowl documentary, the Cake video, the Venus video, the Do What U Want video, the Cure video, the mariachi version of Americano, the longer version of Bad Kids, the rest of the making Joanne videos, #GagaInSpace…

Gaga: Could you shut up a second?

De la Sierra Morena, cielito lindo, vienen bajando, un par de ojitos negros
cielito lindo, de contrabando. Una flecha en el aire cielito lindo, lanzó cupido
y como fue jugando cielito lindo, yo fui el herido. ¡Vivan los novios! la–negra–tomasa & jerryprieto!
