Cultura en Austin wants you to kick off the work week in style. We present a blog feature called Music Monday, where we highlight new or recent Latin alternative music videos from artists who should be on your radar. We’ll showcase Austin-based musicians as well as those who have performed in Austin or will soon.

Artist: Macaco

International pop sensation Dani Carbonell, better known as Macaco, performed in Austin this spring during South by Southwest as a featured artist with the Sounds of Spain showcase.

Song: “Volar” Album: “Historias Tattooadas”

Macaco released his latest album “Historias Tattooadas” in March, which includes the second single of the album “Volar.”

Macaco has described “Volar” as “a love song with a bittersweet touch.” Check out the music video, which tells the story of a boy on a family camping trip who becomes infatuated with a young woman working at the campsite. “Volar” touches on the ways people romanticize relationships and the challenges that keep people apart.

If you’re a Austin-based Latin music band and are releasing a new video, let me know at nflores@statesman.com.
