Julieta Venegas

Julieta Venegas In A Wedding Dress

Julieta Venegas is a Mexican singer who currently lives in Los Angeles. I first discovered her on the "Amores Perros" soundtrack album. It's one of my favorite movies, and I loved the score as well as the music selection for the film. She contributes "Me Van A Matar" and, if you rent the dvd, you can see the video for it. She definitely has a more contemporary pop sound and is not the typical Mexican singer/songwriter. She cites David Bowie, Prince, and Suzanne Vega as some of her influences. She's released three albums and all are great, particularly "Si". Her website is in Spanish, but it's not hard to figure out how to download some song samples. Buy the "Amores Perros Soundtrack", "Aqui", "Bueninvento", or "Si".
