Ximena Sariñana: Sintiendo Rara

Read more

One of my favorite songs from Ximena Sariñana’s jazzy debut album, Mediocre, is "Sintiendo Rara." From Ximena’s MySpace page I just learned this is actually a cover of an Uruguayan cantautor called Erik Couts, whose own EP, Pampero, was produced by Campodónico (Bajofondo , Jorge Drexler) who also produced Ximena’s album.
Listen to Couts’s original version of "Sintiendo Rara" here.
Listen to Ximena’s version here (Couts plays guitar in this version too.)
