About Ximena Sariñana
This Mexico City-based singer-songwriter has the business in her genes. Her dad is director Fernando Sarinana (Todo el Poder, among others) and her mother is the screenwriter Carolina Rivera. Sarinana herself started out in show business at the tender age of eight, when she sang the theme song for the telenovela Luz Clarita. She's acted steadily since, gaining some fame for her roles in films like Amarte Duele -- and for singing "Las Huellas" on that film's soundtrack. In 2008 her deceptively named debut album Mediocre generated buzz among Latin alternative fans looking for a new heroine. With solid songwriting skills and an impeccably cool delivery, Sarinana just might be it.
