Spanish star Macaco performed during SXSW and has released a new music video.

Cultura en Austin wants you to kick off the work week in style. We present a blog feature called Music Monday, where we highlight new or recent Latin alternative music videos from artists who should be on your radar. We’ll showcase Austin-based musicians as well as those who have performed in Austin or will soon.


International pop sensation Dani Carbonell, better known as Macaco, performed in Austin this spring during South by Southwest as a featured artist with the Sounds of Spain showcase.

Song: “Volar” Album: “Historias Tattooadas”

Macaco released his latest album “Historias Tattooadas” in March, which includes the second single of the album “Volar.”

Macaco has described “Volar” as “a love song with a bittersweet touch.” Check out the music video, which tells the story of a boy on a family camping trip who becomes infatuated with a young woman working at the campsite. “Volar” touches on the ways people romanticize relationships and the challenges that keep people apart.
