Singers who lived through Mexico's Golden Age of Cinema where they either had roles in films where they provided their vocals or their careers took place during this time. 1933 to 1964 (some will argue that the era was between 1936-1957, but I will add anything between 1933 to 1964),

He was given the honorific nickname "El Charro de México" (Mexico's Horseman) because he is credited with popularizing the Mexican equestrian sport la charrería to international audiences.

3. Tin-Tan

born "Germán Genaro Cipriano Gómez Valdés de Castillo", better known as Tin-Tan, was an actor, singer and comedian who was born in Mexico City but was raised and began his career in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua. He often displayed the pachuco dress and employed pachuco slang in many of his movies, some with his brothers Manuel "El Loco" Valdés and Ramón Valdés. He made the language of the Mexican American pachucos famous in Mexico. A "caló" based in Spanglish, it was a mixture of Spanish and English in speech based on that of Mexican immigrants.
