"Making Movies is a 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.
The First Sustainable Rock musical project that seeks to make our world a place that is at peace with all kingdoms. We seek to take the next step to a new sustainable era, unprecedented in the music industry. To do this, we are breaking the rules of the game: We are the first to offset our carbon footprint. We define live policies (responsible producers, vegetarian menus, backstage recycling, work with collectors).
Cigarbox School: workshops held in public schools, where children are taught to build musical instruments using recycled materials. “Let's go back to using our hands. Let us be ambassadors of our land again. Let's oxygenate the industry." Felipe Ubeda, Cigarbox Man.
Y así, entre los acordes abiertos de su Cigarbox Guitar, nace Cigarbox Man: el primer proyecto musical de Rock Sustentable que busca hacer de nuestro mundo, un lugar que se encuentra en paz con todos los reinos.
