“Mayahuel” by “The Trouble Notes” is a track that embodies hope and motivation, the music swirls around you in this hypnotic and somewhat unexpected way, resulting in you listening sincerely. Those ideas, when you don’t give up on your dreams, and when you don’t let those around you knock you down; Those ideas really shine bright now. The music works together solidly to give this feeling of eternity, and when it’s over you know these artists will continue to create and develop and move on.
The video was shot at the Center Films studio in Germany and is the first in a new series of live videos created with them. The song is inspired by the music of Rodrigo y Gabriela and combines Latin jazz with folk and gypsy styles.
Sitting somewhere between traditional folk, modern classical and tribal dance music, ‘The Trouble Notes’ have traveled across continents in search of musical influences. The band has proudly independently built its diverse audience – colloquially known as “troublemakers” – as a testament to their self-made success story, which has led to major festival appearances, multiple film scores and an extensive touring schedule spanning the globe.
The core of the band consists of violinist Bennet Cerven, guitarist Florian Eisenschmidt, and percussionist Oliver Maguire. Their music has been featured in award-winning films and documentaries, and their headlining Lose Your Ties Tour included sold-out concerts in Europe and North America. They have performed live on television in the USA, Japan, Brazil, Germany and France. In 2019, they toured supporting Rodrigo y Gabriela as part of their Grammy Award-winning Mettavolution tour.
“Mayahuel”, the track is one that gets better the more you listen. Once you are locked; Once something catches your attention, it’s not a song you want to skip past. Music first and foremost; That’s production, mixing, and creativity. What matters in music is delivery – the performance of these lines and that hook is important.
All the instruments used on this track are generic, but the music is incredibly interesting, so even though the track has a very classic feel – that nostalgia we all crave – there’s something brand new about it, which speaks volumes. It’s the kind of track that sets you up for a good time while conjuring up the right kind of mood for summer. I think everyone will like this Latin music.
