    Making Movies Kansas City, MO

    Making Movies is a band that makes American music with an asterisk: because Making Movies’ sound encompasses the entirety of the Americas. Through this broader perspective, Making Movies crunches classic rock into Latin American rhythms — African-derived percussion and styles like rumba, merengue, mambo, and cumbia — in a way that feels oddly familiar yet delivers the invigorating chills of hearing something singularly special.
