Making Movies’ song “Cuna de Vida” - from the band’s brand new album A La Deriva (released March 5 and produced by Steve Berlin) – was recently featured on AOL Spinner. Now, the young Kansas City-based band hits the road for a Spring Tour that winds through parts of the Midwest, south, and west - including a stop at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre for Los Lobos’ Cinco de Mayo Festival. Making Movies’ complete list of currently confirmed tour dates is included below.

Making Movies makes music that matters now: rhythmically adventurous, lyrically substantive, and melodically sensuous---the progressive Latino sound.

The strong rapport between Berlin (whose studio credits include Los Lobos first 2 records, Ozomatli’s Embrace The Chaos, Los Super Seven’s Canto) and the members of Making Movies is palpable, and for A La Deriva the collaboration created a sound that is “bigger, roomier and even more raucously joyous” (Ink Magazine) than the band’s first recording. Berlin was first turned on to Making Movies when the guys opened up for Los Lobos at their Kansas City show. “I was struck by the effortless way they moved between musical styles, all the while managing to make each one completely their own,” Berlin explains. “It was fairly instantaneous that I decided I wanted to work with them.” 

“We went into the studio thinking Steve would trim down our sound, make us sound more concise,” Enrique recently told the Kansas City Star. “But he did the opposite. He’d have us drag things out, follow our instincts and get weirder and more complex.” As to Berlin’s thoughts on the final result, he says “…it’s rare that [when producing an album] I anticipate a result and it’s a million times better than what I anticipated. This is one of those records.”

Now, Making Movies gears up to bring their music nationwide.
