Any particular style/genre?
I for one dislike "ranchera" or "tex-mex" music, and all it's variants (specially when a song I like it's turned into that genre), but that's just me...

Let's see, from Mexico I used to listen to Mana sometimes (rock band), but that was a while ago...

I could not even listen to that video for ten seconds...
But to get some ideas,you might go to LastFM..
http://www.last.fm/listen/artist/Mexican/similarartists

It's free and it works with Linux.
Another place to listen to a variety of music in your area of interest is here:
http://pandora.com/

It also plays nice with Linux.
There should also be Mexican radio stations you can listen to on line.

Too much to choose from.

Here are some genres you might want to try at LastFM or Pandora:

flamenco, copla, bolero, rumba, tango, son, cumbia...

Of course there's also pop and rock in Spanish, either from Spain or Latin America.

If you want to know what a radio from Spain understands as "our music" give this a try: http://www.cadenadial.com/

If you let me know which styles you prefer, I can try to help you more precisely.

Dhira (http://dhira.com/english/index.htm) -- a band from Spain.

Their lyrics are both in English and Spanish (in the same songs). They have an interesting sound: some dub, some rap/hiphop, some reggae, some pop, some Manu Chao sounds, some eastern influences (sitar!).

You can listen to their music on their homepage.
