Coachella Spotlight: Ximena Sariñana

Coachella Spotlight: Ximena Sariñana

What kind of offspring can a director and screenwriter procreate? Of course someone that likely wants to be in the limelight, but if they're lucky, they'll emulate someone like singer/songwriter, and actress, 26-year-old Ximena Sariñana. But make no mistake this Mexican starlet, who began her career at the age of 11 as a young villain on the telenovela stands in a category all her own.

Sariñana released her self-titled sophomore album last August. This spirited-pop album, produced by her boyfriend Omar Rodriguez Lopez of Mars Volta, marks as her first album in English, and the follow-up to the critically acclaimed debut Mediocre, released in 2008. Rolling Stone said Mediocre was "one of the strongest debuts from a female singer-songwriter since Norah Jones' Come Away With Me."

A reunited At The Drive-In will also be on the Coachella lineup so we're going to assume the fuzzy-haired guitarist will be making an appearance during Sariñana's set.

Ximena Sariñana will be playing Friday.
