Whether singing in English or Spanish, playing electric guitars or indigenous instruments, Making Movies is making waves with an original sound Rolling Stone describes as “an eclectic blend of rumbero percussions, delicate organs and grungy fuzz rock.”
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”).
The band employs a standard rock lineup of guitar/bass/drums/percussion, but the members also incorporate synthesizers, effects pedals, and indigenous instruments from Latin America into their music. They interweave styles as divergent as cumbia and blues, salsa and soul, Cuban son and rock’n’roll––all boiled down into their own original sound.
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 will be released summer 2022 on L.A.-based label Cósmica Artists.
