Here’s the latest music video from Monsieur Periné, a great Colombian neo-swing band I profiled recently. It’s a light-hearted video of a toy soldier making his way through “La Ciudad” to find his princess, the ever enthralling Catalina García, lead singer of the group. The video follows its characters through the gorgeous, historic parts of Mexico City while the band plays in bright, gaudy outfits, which Catalina designs for all their performances.
(Update 8/8/13: Here is the online premiere of the video on LA Weekly. You can catch them next at the Peace Over Violence graduation ceremony at CARECEN on Friday, 8/9.
7/31/13: Here is the RSVP link for the special premiere event by Las Cafeteras and Mucho Music for Luna Lovers video on Tuesday, August 6, at the Vincent Price Art Museum in East LA! This is a can’t miss event!)
Looks like East LA artivists Las Cafeteras have a real treat in store with their next music video with elaborate costumes & storyline befitting their enchanting song Luna Lovers. At their live performances, while their rousing anthem, La Bamba Rebelde, gets audiences jumping on their feet, Luna Lovers is a sweet ballad that has crowds swooning and I can’t wait to see it. Enjoy the sneak preview and just announced on their Facebook page, if you sign up for their newsletter on their site tonight, you’ll be one of the first to receive a link in the morning to RSVP to a very special, intimate world premiere event! Space is limited so sign up quick!
