"Making Movies (and its producer, Steve Berlin of Los Lobos) shows us how deeply thought-out lyrics sound next to a rhythm track that somehow both propels and floats without violating the laws of physics." --Felix Contreras NPR

Making Movies is an American band based out of Kansas City, Missouri. Their music is a blend of Latin rhythms and indie-rock textures, with lyrics in both English and Spanish. They take melodies and guitar tones with an American indie-rock approach and lay them over afro-latino rhythms found in salsa, merengue, and cumbia. Their sophomore album, "A La Deriva," is produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos fame. The band consists of four members: Enrique Chi (guitar/vocals) Juan-Carlos Chaurand (percussion/keyboard), and Brendan Culp (drums) and Diego Chi (bass).

Making Movies has shared the stage with the likes of Los Lobos, Tennis, Ozomatli, Aterciopelados, Neon Indian, Delta Spirit, and Mariachi El Bronx among others.
