Formed by Panamanian brothers Enrique and Diego Chi, on electric guitar and bass respectively, Making Movies are joined by Mexican-American percussionist and keyboardist Juan-Carlos Chaurand, and drummer Duncan Burnett. The foursome showcases their Latin American roots by incorporating traditional instruments like the Panamanian mejorana, and swapping drums and percussion for a dueling zapateado huasteco.

“Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned…”, said the English playwright William Congreve in 1697’s Mourning Bride. Three hundred and twenty-five years later “Sala De Los Pecadores”, the latest single from Making Movies, forcefully concurs with that sentiment via a cumbia steeped dynamo. Fuzzy, stark guitar riffs and a blistering percussion section drive the verses, leaving the bass and soaring vocals to hit hard on the richly layered choruses. The video is a Tarantino meets Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas misadventure that perfectly compliments the “off the rails” feeling one gets after losing a love they were by no means ready to let go of yet.
