BIO:

“Making Movies is a psychedelic Panamanian band that makes American music with an asterisk: because Making Movies’ sound encompasses the entirety of the Americas. It’s through this broader perspective that Making Movies crunches classic rock into Latin American rhythms — African-derived percussion and styles like rumba, merengue, mambo and cumbia — in a way that feels oddly familiar, yet delivers the invigorating chills of hearing something singularly special.

​​Over the course of their career, the quartet has turned heads as a Tiny Desk newcomer (with “A La Deriva”), a voice for immigrant rights (with “I Am Another You” which reached #3 on Billboard’s Latin Pop Album chart), and as a co-writer alongside salsa icon Rubén Blades (with Latin GRAMMY nominated song “No Te Calles”).

Making Movies has toured extensively, appearing with the likes of Arcade Fire, Rubén Blades, Los Lobos, Hurray For the Riff Raff, Bomba Estereo, Galactic, Flor De Toloache, and Thievery Corporation. The band’s fourth album XOPA was just released on L.A.-based label Cósmica Artists.

en Español:

Ya sea que canten en inglés o en español, o que toquen guitarras eléctricas o instrumentos autóctonos, Making Movies está causando un revuelo por su sonido original descrito por Rolling Stone como “una mezcla ecléctica de percusión de rumbero, órganos delicados y rock grunge distorsionado.”

Durante el transcurso de su carrera, el cuarteto ha llamado la atención como debutante en Tiny Desk (con “A La Deriva”), como voz en pro de los derechos de inmigrantes (con “I Am Another You”, que llegó al n.° 3 en la lista de álbumes de Pop Latino de Billboard), y como coautores con el ícono de la salsa Rubén Blades (con el tema “No Te Calles” nominado a un GRAMMY Latino).

La banda emplea un complemento normal rock de guitarra/bajo/batería/percusión, pero sus miembros incorporan sintetizadores, efectos e instrumentos autóctonos de América Latina a su música. Entretejen estilos tan diversos como la cumbia y el blues, la salsa y el soul, el son cubano y el rock’n’roll —todo combinado para formar su propio sonido original.

Making Movies ha realizado muchas giras, presentándose con figuras tales como Arcade Fire, Rubén Blades, Los Lobos, Hurray For the Riff Raff, Bomba Estéreo, Galactic, Flor de Toloache y Thievery Corporation. El cuarto álbum de la banda se lanzará durante el verano del 2022, bajo el sello Cósmica Artists de Los Ángeles.
