Cumbia fusión sextet Las Calakas, recently released the music video for their single “Morena” off upcoming debut full-length album, Hechizo, which is due out in Spring 2022 via My Grito Industries. Las Calakas are the founders of Phoenix Latin event “Cumbia Till You Drop” who debuted as a live band in 2018 and then released a self-titled EP. In 2020, they wrapped up production on their first full length record forthcoming from My Grito.
Drummer Rafa Calaka says:
The theme of this song is about a girl who is very dangerous. Like, you know she is dangerous but we as men don’t care and we fall for her physical beauty. We know her energy is not good at all but the gorgeousness of her eyes put us in a trance. Matt (the video director) and I stayed at a coffee shop for 5 hours coming up with this story. We are super surprised because everything that we visioned, came out exactly on camera. All the scenes we had in our mind came to life. That’s a pretty hard thing to do. But we both are super content with the final product. It was a lot of hard work and shooting In different locations but it’s all worth it. We shot 10 hours per day. There is so much love and passion put into this. We love it!
