Making Movies
Making Movies is an American band based out of Kansas City, Missouri. Built upon a heavy foundation of Afro-Latino rhythms, they have created a bilingual (English and Spanish), psychedelic re-envisioning of the Latin American “son.” The band consists of four members: Enrique Chi (guitar/vocals), Juan-Carlos Chaurand (percussion/keyboard), Brendan Culp (drums) and Diego Chi (bass).

Alex Cuba
A forward-thinking, indie-minded artist, Alex Cuba has amassed a steadily growing following among critics and fans. With over 20 awards and nominations to his name, including 4 Latin Grammys and two Junos Awards and three Grammy Nominations. His music at once incorporates his roots and is a unique amalgam of styles. Collaborating with peers ranging from Jason Mraz to Ron Sexsmith and Jim Cuddy; and bringing together melodies, pop soul hooks and rock chords in songs that may seem to bear little resemblance to traditional Cuban form. His newest offering, Lo Unico Constante (The One Constant) sits comfortably between worlds and reflects on the intimate beauty of the guitar and vocals, back to the heart of the songwriting craft. Uplifting and bright to soulful and philosophical the songs will speak to the listener through melody as well as lyrics.

“(Alex) Cuba is a groundbreaking figure, which may say something about the process of giving roots music a cosmopolitan polish” – Nashville Scene

“Staying true to his Spanish language Folk-Funk-Rock hybrid has paid off.” – Billboard "
