New music video from Costa Rica’s Sonámbulo
In a celebration concert at Jazz Café Escazú Thursday, Costa Rican band Sonámbulo Psicotropical released a music video for “La Maraca,” the first single from their unreleased sophomore album. Filmed in San José, the video depicts the quest of a group of children to make a maraca, which involves a witch doctor, an accidental fish killing and grave robbing.
Fresh from surgery to correct his rare spine condition, Daniel Cuenca, the band’s frontman, makes an appearance in the video, though he is not yet performing live. The band has not announced a release date for their new album, but it is expected to come out in the next several months.
