Energy, mysticism, roots– it's hard to describe the 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 rock'n'roll that makes the group's 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 Chi's guitar anchors his spirited voice in the midst of the Chaurand brothers’ primal and folkloric percussion. An explosion of energy on the stage– does the soundtrack make the movie, or does the movie make for the soundtrack?
