      Making Movies

      with Pink Hawks
      Energy, mysticism, roots its hard to describe the genre-breaking music of Making Movies, a band that Rolling Stone says is breaking down walls in the United States, with a mix of afro-latino rhythms and psychedelic rockn'roll that makes the groups sound something unique. The connection between the Chi brothers (hailing from Santiago, Panama) together with their Mexican bandmates, the Chaurand brothers results in an overwhelming musical presence that takes you through landscapes festive, furious, refreshing, and dark.At times the falsetto of Diego Chi (bassist) takes you to the underworld, while the fuzz of Enrique Chis guitar anchors his spirited voice in the midst of the Chaurand brothers primal and folkloric percussion. An explosion of energy on the stagedoes the soundtrack make the movie, or does the movie make for the soundtrack?In 2017 Art As Mentorship was created by Enrique Chi, born out of six years of collaboration between Making Movies and local non-profits Base Academy of Music and the Mattie Rhodes Center. What began as a week-long music education camp for youth in an underserved community has grown into a six-month songwriting and mentorship program called the Rebel Song Academy. Students get to record with and learn from industry professionals, like Grammy-winning producer Steve Berlin of Los Lobos who recorded the first class in 2018.The world turned their attention to Making Movies as Rubn Blades, Flor De Toloache, Asdru Sierra of Ozomatli, David Hidalgo of Los Lobos and Las Cafeteras joined forces with the band on their new album, ameri'kana, which releases in May 2019. The first two singles, No Te Calles and "Cmo Perdonar", were launched along with a movement that invites artists and fans to participate on the website NoTeCalles.World, by joining the chorus with Rubn Blades and Making Movies. The album includes "Delilah", a song about immigration written during a week-long writing session between Blades and Lou Reed that had never before been recorded. Saying that "Rock'n'roll is Latin music" the band dedicates the album to the beautiful inhabitants of the ameri'kana continent.
