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: Julieta Venegas
Mexican pop-rocker Julieta Venegas has been rocking her accordion, guitar and piano since the mid-1990s. She performed in Austin in 2014 at the Pachanga Latino Music Festival. Check out an Austin360 interview with Venegas.
Song: “Ese Camino” Album: “Algo Sucede”
Venegas will release her latest album “Algo Sucede” on Aug. 14, but Venegas fans can already listen to and check out the music video for the album’s single “Ese Camino,” which was inspired by Venegas’ personal childhood as well as the overall importance of childhood.
Latin Grammy-nominated director Claudio Divella shot the video and aimed to “evoke childhood, the passing of time, games our memory plays in general and how they become blurry and questionable in a symbolic way, by presenting two parallel stories that unfold in one and the same place,” according to a news release.
Check out the music video below, and let us know what you think in the comments section.
