“Trip the cumbia fantastic with the cinematic and funky rolas of Austin’s Como Las Movies.”- Chilly [El Sonido- KEXP 90.3FM]
Dancing your ass off to DJs spinning electro-cumbia rolas was
the impetus behind Como Las Movies. Lacking turntable skills, songwriter-guitarist
Nelson Valente, opted for writing and recording tunes on his
Macbook. His vision: form a band showcasing instruments’
individual aspects yet add a cohesive layer of musicality focusing
on the use of keys, bass, guitars, and percussion.

Valente diligently courted two Austin musicians possessing the
much-needed and much-desired musical chops he sought: guitarist 
Joe Rocha and stand-up bassist Mincho Jacob. Shortly thereafter,
accordionist Gerardo Arellano, drummer Joseph Loney, and singer/
keyboardist/guitarist Tomas Olano-García joined. Now the electro-
cumbias have come to life, out of Valente/s bedroom studio and
onto the dance floor.

Recently, fans have been dancing and singing along to Como Las 
Movies performing at local clubs and Austin’s premiere Latino
music festival, Pachanga Fest. Como Las Movies has shared the
stage with a variety of bands, including  GRAMMY award winners-La Santa Cecilia and Grupo Fantasma, plus Piñata Protest, and Munny Chicha. 
Como Las Movies’ ability to capture electronic cumbia in a live
setting piqued the interest of famed producer Adrian Quesada (Grupo Fantasma, David Garza, Natalia Clavier, The Echocentrics), who was inclined to
invite them to his studio to record and collaborate on a couple
of singles “Feedback Cumbiero” and “Mermelada” . The double-sided single is out now on Cosmica Records
