The Chamanas debut their new video for their single “Dulce Mal” via Remezcla. The band’s border spanning hometowns of Ciudad Juarez and El Paso,create the backdrop for Amalia Mondragón’s lush dreamy vocals, laid over muted electronic-tinged arrangements.
The imagery in the video and the inspiration behind it focuses on the duality of life in a bordertown and how two cultures commingle and coexist. The band describes, “On the border between El Paso and Ciudad Juarez, there is a balance between cultures. The way we see it, there’s no border, Mexicans speak English and Americans speak Spanish…that’s just how life is here. We wanted to capture that spirit – that in spite of all our differences, we coexist in mutual respect and tolerance.”
Their critically acclaimed album “Once Once” was featured as one of iTunes’ best albums of 2015. Remezcla has also described the album as one full of “70s Festival OTI-worthy ballads that demand your attention and emotion” and “Dulce Mal” is no exception. Watch the video below:
