"Mexican Spaghetti Western"
Chingon (Spanish for "bad ass") was started by director Robert Rodriguez (Spy Kids, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Sin City) to create music for his movies and those of his friends. Their electric re-arrangement of the classic mariachi "Malaguena Salerosa" can be heard during the end titles of Tarantino's Kill Bill, Vol. 2. A Rodriguez original, "Siente Mi Amor," featuring vocals by actress Salma Hayek, was used in Once Upon a Time in Mexico. Chingon is made up of Rodriguez and various musicians from Austin, Texas. Now the band's playing live shows, and Mexican Spaghetti Western is their first studio CD. You can order it here.
