Making Movies have partnered with Los Lobos frontman David
Hidalgo to create a twist on the famous Los Tigres Del Norte
song De Paisano A Paisano, a song available in all digital platforms now and; for limited time free to download at La Banda Elástica Magazine. De Paisano a Paisano is the second single of their upcoming new EP "You Are Another Me" set to be released on December 1st.
Making Movies, who just wrapped up their 22 city Immigrants Are Beautiful Tour, as a celebration of solidarity in the face of fear-mongering and hate. Frontman Enrique Chi shared, "It's time to realize we are all part of this continuum, this beautifully flawed human race that has migrated from every continent to bring us all the beauty we enjoy today."
"There is no other musician in the world I would rather have play Paisano with us than David
Hidalgo." Singer and guitarist of Making Movies, Enrique Chi explains. "History often only remembers the victories but we need not forget that when Los Lobos started touring, thirty some years ago, merely singing in Spanish at a rock club could result in being booed, harassed and kicked off stage. Their music alone was a form of protest, they were and are still warriors. His accordion work on this song brings me to tears and his vocal enters undermine musically and spiritually lifting me up. What an honor, protest can beautiful."
Hidalgo continues, "The lead vocal on Paisano is so soulful. I didn't want to mess with it so the harmony isn't traditional but neither is Making Movies and that's a good thing. Beautiful! Making movies aren't afraid to speak up. They boldly chose this song because it tells the story of what our country and our people are going through and have been for years."
Making Movies is an American rock and roll band that captivates audiences with their interweaving of Afro-Latino rhythms and psychedelic rock 'n' roll. The band was formed in Kansas City in 2009 by singer/guitarist Enrique Chi and his brother, bassist Diego
Chi, joined by percussionist Juan-Carlos Chaurand and his brother, drummer Andres Chaurand.
On December 2nd, the band returns home after the 22 city Immigrants Are Beautiful Tour to Kansas City to host a special "I Am Another You Experience" at Knuckleheads. The night is meant to bring the community together; we want to show that protest can be beautiful,'' says Enrique Chi, lead singer of Making Movies. This one-night-only show will feature a theatrical rendition of I Am Another You, the artistically ambitious and politically charged bilingual follow up to 2014's A La Deriva. The self-released I Am Another You explores themes of immigration and identity and has become a battle cry against the anti-immigration and racist hate speech that has risen in recent months.
