Alex Cuba sounds off on the things that enquiring minds want to know.
On the madness of modern life, as reflected in his new video for “El Día de Hoy”:
“I’m interested in writing about the times that we’re living in. There’s a lot to say about it, and I think there’s an immense amount of ways we can be doing it. I’m inspired, let’s put it this way, by the times that we’re living in, when there seems to be so many things happening at the same time. We’re maybe losing perspective on what is real and what isn’t—or maybe we never had it, but these times are more than ever putting us into that position, I think.”
On the “We are all immigrants” premise of Making Movies’ Carnaval tour:
“I think that is, in principle, why I accepted to join the tour. It’s very meaningful; it’s pretty much reflecting what the times are. And so it’s a tour of unity.”
On his annual midwinter tour of the Prairies:
“You know why we do it? We do it because we need to play music for those Canadians who do not run away to Mexico.”
