Mariachi Goes Alternative

There is nothing more special or more sensual than softly strummed guitars, soothing horns, and a maracas shaking slowly to the beat. It’s even better when it’s Daft Punk. Enjoy these ten very special songs with a mariachi twist. Hell, call some friends over, make some chimichangas and dance. Pretend it’s Cinco de Mayo in January. What’s stopping you? Nada. Buy a Donald Trump piñata. Eye-ya-ya-yeeeeahhhh!
