Bio/Press

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.” In supporting that cause, a portion of all proceeds from I Am Another You goes to the National Immigration Law Center. The band has shared the stage with Arcade Fire, Los Lobos, Galactic, Ozomatli, Tennis, Thievery Corporation, Rodrigo y Gabriela, and Hurray for the Riff Raff.

“I Am Another You is one of the year’s standout albums, a protest record that doesn’t forget to party” — KUTX (Austin, TX)

“They exalt the beauty of being immigrants” — Chicago Tribune

“Kansas City-based Making Movies took the plunge, and the result is a beautiful, cumbia-tinged cover that takes the song to an emotional, intimate realm.” — Univision

“Making Movies is breaking down barriers for Latinos in the US Heartland” — Remezcla

“Cuban dance hall merged with blasts of scabby guitar straight out of Sonic Youth’s Daydream Nation, as if reinterpreted by Santana.” — Kansas City Star

“… tough to classify into one genre, which … makes them that much more appealing.” — CNN en Español

“The band synthesizes what’s happening in … Latin music better than anyone else out there today.” — MTV
