Making Movies

YOR Sessions

Making Movies YOR Session was amazing to witness. The band members were ready to interact with the space and especially the youth. The session started with a youth songwriting workshop that eventually ended with a creative uplifting song created in the span of 30 minutes. The youth were really into the processes, figuring out the structure, lyrics, and chord progressions. With the guidance of Making Movies the youth got a insight in how the band starts their songwriting process. After the band recorded an original track named La Verdad. The youth participated in chanting " The Truth" in Spanish throughout the song, which gave the song some added power! You will be able to hear the song in our Vol. 3 compilation album.
