SISTER MANTOS New, Original Score for JEAN COCTEAU'S THE BLOOD OF A POET


ON THE FILM: 

French writer and visual artist Jean Cocteau made his filmmaking debut with this avant-garde 1930 film, while cinema was still in a period of transition from silent to sound film. The film moves through a sequence of four loosely connected episodes intercut with dreamlike images of rotating masks and spinning wire models of a human head. 


ON THE MUSIC: 

Sister Mantos was originally a solo project, conceived by Oscar M. Santos in 2009. The band transformed from a bedroom ambient lofi project into a bilingual neo-tropical psychedelic punk funk orchestra. When Sister Mantos takes the stage, their psychedelic blend of Latin beats, punk attitude, and funk rhythms invigorate the crowd to dance, sing, and rejoice. Sister Mantos sings songs in Spanish and English about love, queer & POC empowerment, and utopias that are free of war and oppression. Audiences are sent on a spaced-out psychedelic road trip and treated to a mystical experience of spastic dancing, bumping beats, and positive energy. The band released its latest album, ‘Songs in the Key of Destroy Capitalism’ in 2019 and is now working on new music videos, a new album, and a Sister Mantos video game. www.sistermantos.com
