Hecho A Mano: Interview with Monsieur Periné

Earlier this year, you guys released a video titled Una Flor. Is this an indicative of what’s to come for the second album…


…or the first video (of the album)?

We don’t know if that will be part of the first video, but it will be part of what we will do.

The video shows two old couples dancing, I don’t know if that will indicate you guys taking a slower rhythm…

Catalina: Danzón.

Camilo: On tonight’s show, we will premiere that song.

Which one, Una Flor or…?

It is called Cempazuchitl.



The other interviewer asked them about other topics. Later, I managed to ask about their tour.

What do you expect from the Peruvian crowd?

What do we expect? To sing, to join us singing, to have fun, to leave the show happy and go back home with their hearts filled.

Since you’re on your Latin American tour, you guys went to Argentina, which is one of the coutries known for having the best concert crowds. What did you thought of it?

It was incredible!

Nice. Was it sold out?

It sold out. It was totally filled, and the crowd also had a nice energy, a very good vibe, they knew the songs. The place was incredible, the working crew treated us really well, the press treated us really well, everyone treated us great.

And the experience in Chile? Especially Lollapalooza.

Great! Lollapalooza is an important festival, so it was a grand opportunity to play the first album…

In front of a massive crowd.

Yes. Massive. We had a nice scenario, open.

You guys played late at night. When I saw the schedule, you guys were going to play earlier. But it’s great that you got positioned later on, you guys deserve it.

Yeah, it was good. Anyways, there were a lot of big bands that day.

Arcade Fire and Red Hot Chili Peppers played on Sunday.

Yeah. So, it was also a challenge and I think it went well.
