Como Las Movies

Nelson Valente Aguilar, an Austinite by way of border town McAllen Texas, is chief composer for his indie-cumbia-pop project, Como Las Movies. He combines his pan-Latin and contemporary influences into a duality that NPR described as “...a colorful, cultural soundscape from a unique blend
of instruments” while KCRW observes that their music “is occupies a space where traditional Tejano, Cumbia, and Son Jarocho music meet face to face with synth-heavy new wave inspiration. It’s not a dense space with many fact they may be there by themselves.”
Como Las Movies recently played C3’s inaugural FORmat Festival and also made its debut at this year’s 2022 ACL Festival. Como Las Movies was chosen as Austin’s KUTX Artist of The Month in October dedicating
a month-long feature on the artist.
