Ximena Sariñana is a Mexican singer-songwriter and actress. In 2009, she received critical acclaim and a Grammy nomination, and 2 Latin Grammy nominations for her debut album, Mediocre. Her sophomore album was a step in a different direction, and Billboard.com describes it as, “a collection of English-language songs showcasing her ethereal voice, thoughtful lyrics and offbeat personality.” Her latest album, ‘No todo lo puedes dar’, is entirely all in Spanish and was produced by the acclaimed John Congleton, who has worked with artists such as St. Vincent.

We filmed this project during the LAMC festival in July 2015 realizing we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to invite so many great hispanic artists coming through NY in the same week. Each band brought a completely different vibe to our space and we were touched when some of them made special song arrangements just for The House of Creatives. Mishu and The HoC have strong latin roots and we needed to showcase the talent currently surging from the community, it was really special having them perform and hang out with us.
