Cumbia de Piedra
The heyday of traditional, hand-drawn 2D animation may have come and gone, but there still remain artists and animators who know the aesthetic and emotional value of returning to the basics. Case in point: Cumbia de Piedra.
An exceptionally impressive music video beautifully realized through rotoscoping, watercolor painting stills, and other wonderful old-school tricks. This track is phenomenal too, an infectiously jazzy and rhythmic piece that's as hypnotic as its accompanying video.
"Cumbia de Piedra is an animated music video produced by Fabrica promoting MOHS, the second album of Jhon William Castaño Montoya, a researcher in Fabrica's music team. Realized by Tomás Pichardo, a Fabrica animator from the Dominican Republic, Cumbia de Piedra is a hand-made 2d animation that explores the culture, colors and textures of Cumbia."
