Pernett & Quantic Release Star-Studded Animated Video for Digital Cumbia ‘Vamos A Hacer’30 November, 2018
“We’re going to do it”. That’s the message of the new video from Pernett and Quantic. “Vamos A Hacer” is a digital cumbia in classic Pernett fashion, shot through with the spirit of carnival (not to mention Pernett’s sublime gaita playing), and with Quantic added accordion riffs and ensuring that low-end is as heavy as possible.
The track first featured on Pernett’s Siembra Solo Amor album of 2016, but here is revived by a magnificent tongue-in-cheek animated video that manages to match the track’s energetic approach. It also features a sterling assortment of guest characters with Aterciopelados, Sidestepper, Bomba Estero, ChocQuibTown and Edson Velandia all making cameos, along with the evil villain of the piece, satirical presidential candidate Severo Pirobo.
The video was created by Jaime Moreno of 4 Extraños en D.C., and noticeably features a final message of putting an end to the proposed new port in Taganga on the Caribbean coast.
