On our Radar: Daniel Haaksman feat Coco Maria, Dengue Dengue Dengue & Ori Kaplan, & Ximena Sariñana21 January, 2019
We’ve got new pop goodness out of Mexico by way of Ximena Sariñana and a dreamy downtempo cumbia from Berlin via Daniel Haaksman.
GERMANY: ‘La Añoranza’ by Daniel Haaksman feat Dengue Dengue Dengue, Ori Kaplan & Coco Maria
The video was shot throughout Berlin in what seems like a sunny spring, and it’s no wonder as añoranza means “longing” and the song is about longing for those beautiful days in Berlin.
Mexico City: ‘Lo Bailado’ by Ximena Sariñana
Ximena Sariñana‘s “Lo Bailado” is a preview of her forthcoming album, expected for release in March, following the breakthrough success of last year’s tropi-pop single “Que Tiene,” which now has more than 20 million total streams.
“Lo Bailado” trades in a philosophy of letting the worst of life roll off your shoulders. Derived from the saying, “lo bailado nadie te lo quita,” the song celebrates what is gained even in loss.
“It means whatever you danced nobody’s going to take that away from you. It doesn’t matter if the outcome is good or bad, what’s important is that what you experienced is yours. If you have a really bad breakup you’re like okay well at least I had fun,” Sariñana said.
