Café Tacvba Features Fierce Mexican Surfer in New Music Video 'Un Par De Lugares': Watch
Just weeks after dropping their first single "Un par de lugares," iconic Mexican rock band Café Tacvba has graced their fans with a beautiful music video to go along with the feel-good tune.
Featuring badass Mexican surfer Leila Takeda, who won Mexico's national surfing championship, the clip was directed by Puerto Rican director Alejandro Pedrosa and Café Tacvba's frontman Rubén Albarrán and filmed in the beaches of Nayarit, Mexico.
While the video does include stunning shots of Takeda riding the waves of the Pacific Ocean, the clip also sends out a clear message of environmental degradation and in one particular scene, you see bulldozers on the beach, implying the destruction of ecosystems and nature. Cafeta is known for their activism on social issues and environmental causes.
Check out the powerful clip below:
"Un par de lugares" is the band's first single in four years. "This is a song that talks about the feeling of absence and how we go to a pair of places - our mind and our heart - to recover the thoughts and feelings that help us alleviate the pain," the band pointed out.
The Mexican quartet recently signed with William Morris Endeavor Entertainment in advance of both their new album and an 18-month worldwide tour, coming in spring 2017.
