Making Movies

January 31 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

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.

Plus: Join Making Movies the night before (Tuesday, January 30) for a free interactive workshop: Ameri’kana and Musical Migrations. This interactive musical presentation explores the origins of American music and the cultures it borrows from.

Making Movies es un grupo musical psicodélico de orígenes panameños que hace música que abarca toda América. Es a través de esta perspectiva qué Making Movies fusiona el rock clásico con ritmos latinoamericanos (percusión de origen africano y estilos como la rumba, el merengue, el mambo y la cumbia) de una manera que produce escalofríos al escuchar algo singular.
A lo largo de su carrera, el cuarteto ha llamado atención apareciendo en el Tiny Desk (con “A La Deriva”), como una voz a favor de los derechos de los inmigrantes (con “I Am Another You”, que alcanzó el puesto número 3 en el álbum de pop latino de Billboard. chart), y como colaboradores con el ícono de la salsa Rubén Blades (con la canción nominada al Latin GRAMMY “No Te Calles”).
Making Movies ha realizado numerosas giras, tocando con artistas como Arcade Fire, Rubén Blades, Los Lobos, Hurray For the Riff Raff, Bomba Estéreo, Galactic, Flor De Toloache y Thievery Corporation. Su cuarto álbum, XOPA, acaba de ser lanzado en el sello Cósmica Artists, con sede en Los Ángeles.
