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.” 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.

“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 under mine musically and spiritually lifting me up.  What an honor, protest can beautiful.”

David 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."
