Calle 13 currently resides at the top of the Latin American music industry. The massively successful group is Puerto Rico’s best known — as well as most revered and divisive — export, having earned a whopping 19 career Latin Grammys with 9 addition nominations for this year’s “Multi Viral”, the band’s fifth record and first independent release.
The beautifully animated stop-motion video for album closer “Así de grandes son las ideas” (That’s how big ideas are) is the result of a collaboration between Puerto Rican animator Quique Rivera Rivera and Calle 13 singer René “Residente” Pérez, who studied animation at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Georgia.
You can find Calle 13 on Soundcloud, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter – or visit their official website. Quique Rivera is on Vimeo and Twitter.
