Making Movies blends pulsing Afro-Latino rhythms, psychedelic jams and rock ’n’ roll swagger into powerful live performances, full of theatrics and cathartic climaxes. Armed with the ambitious and politically charged 2017 release I Am Another You — “lyrically and sonically one of the best albums of the year,” NPR raved — and a companion EP, You Are Another Me, the Kansas City band punches out one high-energy song after another. The foursome showcases their Latin American roots, with frontman Enrique Chi incorporating traditional instruments like the Panamanian mejorana alongside electric guitar, or the Chaurand brothers swapping drums and percussion for a dueling zapateado huasteco, a traditional form of dance from Veracruz, Mexico.
The band’s political idea is straightforward enough that they can express it in four words: “We are all immigrants.”
Blaise Mercedes has been accidentally cool since ’98. As a young Buffalo artist and on call vocalist, Blaise has had the pleasure of working beside influential Buffalo musicians such as Eric Crittenden, Saranaide, Declan Miers, Preach Freedom, Vitamin D, David M. Miller, and many more…
Miss Mercedes has become her own beast- leading bands with fearless creativity, meshing funk and latin influence with gritty soulful vocals to create a New Age fusion anyone can connect to.
