Making Movies is back with another tour focused on our Latino community. We covered them last year, see the article here.

Kicking off the summer of 2018, venues across the USA will host the first ever Carnaval tour, curated by Making Movies. The concerts will invoke the spirit of a Latin American Carnaval where music, culture, and protest dance together. Carnaval: The Tour features special guests: Alex Cuba, Las Cafeteras, and Mariachi Flor De Toloache.

Carnaval The Tour is redefining folk in North America by highlighting the rich, but often overlooked, folk music of Latin America and the artists who are bringing it into the future. From Los Angeles to Cuba, Panama to New Orleans, Carnaval is a moment to let loose and express the resilience of the human spirit. It is an open and inclusive environment; a place where tradition and rebellion coexist.

The 21-date tour will begin on May 14 at Boulder, Colorado and end on June 9th in Kansas City. This one-of-a-kind concert experience is an extension of the Making Movies Carnaval, a music and arts festival founded by American Rock n’ Roll band Making Movies.

Carnaval: The Tour celebrates Latino heritage in the United States by focusing on the integral role Latin music has played in the American story of folk, jazz, and rock’n’roll. “Celebrate Our Folk” is our way of saying “celebrate our America.”
