Enrique Chi

Meet Enrique Chi, the frontman of Making Movies.

Making Movies, the KC-based Latin rock band, has been garnering nationwide attention. Latin music star Ruben Blades has called their music "excellent"; their second album, "I Am Another You," was produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos; and they've performed in an NPR Tiny Desk concert.

Enrique Chi has shared the band's story, but what about his own journey? We'll hear about how his childhood as an immigrant to Lee's Summit helped shape who he is and what he does today.

People don't make cameos in news stories; the human story is the story, with characters affected by news events, not defined by them. As a columnist and podcaster, I want to acknowledge what it feels like to live through this time in Kansas City, one vantage point at a time. Together, these weekly vignettes form a collage of daily life in Kansas City as it changes in some ways, and stubbornly resists change in others.
