    Making Movies

    Latin

    Making Movies blends pulsing Afro-Latino rhythms, psychedelic jams and rock ’n’ roll swagger into powerful live performances, full of theatrics and cathartic climaxes. Armed with the ambitious and politically charged 2017 release I Am Another You — “lyrically and sonically one of the best albums of the year,” NPR raved — and a companion EP, You Are Another Me, the Kansas City band punches out one high-energy song after another. The foursome showcases their Latin American roots, with frontman Enrique Chi incorporating traditional instruments like the Panamanian mejorana alongside electric guitar, or the Chaurand brothers swapping drums and percussion for a dueling zapateado huasteco, a traditional form of dance from Veracruz, Mexico. The band's political idea is straightforward enough that they can express it in four words: “We are all immigrants.”

    "A pointed social statement from a group who's sound is its own form of protest" – KUTX, Austin

    Music

    A forward-thinking, indie-minded artist, Alex Cuba has amassed a steadily growing following among critics and fans. With over 20 awards and nominations to his name, including 4 Latin Grammys and two Junos Awards and three Grammy Nominations. His music at once incorporates his roots and is a unique amalgam of styles. Collaborating with peers ranging from Jason Mraz to Ron Sexsmith and Jim Cuddy; and bringing together melodies, pop soul hooks and rock chords in songs that may seem to bear little resemblance to traditional Cuban form. His newest offering, Lo Unico Constante (The One Constant) sits comfortably between worlds and reflects on the intimate beauty of the guitar and vocals, back to the heart of the songwriting craft. Uplifting and bright to soulful and philosophical the songs will speak to the listener through melody as well as lyrics.

    “(Alex) Cuba is a groundbreaking figure, which may say something about the process of giving roots music a cosmopolitan polish”  – Nashville Scene

    “Staying true to his Spanish language Folk-Funk-Rock hybrid has paid off.” – Billboard
