When Making Movies performs live it is as though a spirit descends upon the room, entrancing audiences with the pulse of their Afro-Latino rhythms, psychedelic jams and rock'n'roll riffing. Armed with their ambitious and politically charged new album, I Am Another You, the band punches out one high-energy song after another, with theatrics and head-banging climaxes riding atop a bed of driving percussion. Their Latin American roots are placed front and center with moments where the front-man Enrique Chi trades his electric guitar for a folkloric Panamanian mejorana, and the Chaurand brothers hop off drums and percussion to instead supply the rhythmic pulse with 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.” In supporting that cause, a portion of all proceeds from their latest release I Am Another You will goes to the National Immigration Law Center. The band has shared the stage with Arcade Fire, Cold War Kids, Los Lobos, Ozomatli, Tennis, Sergio Mendoza of Calexico, Rodrigo y Gabriela, and Hurray for the Riff Raff. "Lyrically and sonically one of the best albums of the year" - NPR “... tough to classify into one genre, which ... makes them that much more appealing.” — CNN en Español “the band synthesizes what’s happening in ... Latin music better than anyone else out there today.” — MTV

Born and raised in the Caribbean, producer/Multi-Instrumentalist A.R. De Jesús has always been surrounded by the flavor of Latin and World music. Inspired by the likes of Maná's Sergio Vallín and Shakira, A.R. got his first guitar early on and began his guitar studies a few years later playing Puerto Rican traditional and folk music in his native town of Villalba. A.R. went on to dive into the worlds of Rock and Thrash Metal, but eventually simmered down into Reggae, which then lead back full circle to his roots on Latin and World Music.

After over a decade of creating, playing, developing a guitar sound of his own, and producing music throughout different genres, A.R. began putting together the sounds and ideas for his first solo project, which would later evolve into NÓMADE. An outlet for freedom and creating without rules or restrictions, the project not only focuses on music but also on A.R.'s passion for all things art.

NÓMADE has also become the channel for A.R. to express and share the positive energy and influence for which he is known for. Making his primary goal in life to make the world a better place through positive influence.

Currently A.R. is working on both an EP and an LP. Both records blend all the years of experience not only musically but spiritually and fusion sounds influenced by World, Latin, Reggae, Electronic, Lounge, Downtempo, and Folk music. Poems and writings about positive influence, love, and embracing of ones roots, are the themes throughout the records.

The EP "Sonido Nómade" will be released in January 2017; while the LP, "Espíritu y Música", is expected to be released later in 2017.
