Mickael and David Carreira debut new music video shot in Cuba

Posted: 17-Aug-16 16:37

The latest singers to land on Cuban soil, brothers Mickael and David Carreira, did so in style by shooting their latest music video in the Cuban capital. Portuguese musical siblings Mickael and David Carreira's new music video in Cuba, which debuted on 21st July, has already been viewed over half-a-million times on YouTube and beautifully showcases some of Havana's most photogenic corners.

Mickael and David Carreira debut new music video shot in Cuba

If there was any doubt that Cuba is very much in Vogue, more and more with each passing day and each new passing celebrity; a new music video by Portuguese Hip Hop and Pop singers, Mickael and David Carreira confirms it.

The Portuguese duo of brothers, who each has a successful music career of their own and each is a household name in their homeland of Portugal, but also in France and beyond, picked Cuba to unite their voices for their first time and make it a family affair. Filmed at a selection of highly photogenic locations throughout the Cuban capital, the newly shot videoclip for the song “Señorita”, which debuted just weeks ago, has proved a huge online success with over 520,000 YouTube views at the time of writing.

For their first joint project together, the siblings chose the streets of Havana as the most romantic of settings for a Hip Hop ballad that bore sublime reggaeton influences, with lyrics that tell of an obsessive longing to be with a girl who seems to play hard to get.

The romance plays out on make-up free Havana hotspots, against the backdrop of crumbly colonial buildings in Old Havana, narrow alleyways that add to its vintage appeal, wide open spaces near the city´s waterfront promenade otherwise known as “El Malecon” and inside a typical Cuban bar where endless lines of rum bottles are neatly stacked next to each other side by side with the Cuban flag.

As a matter of fact, the Cuban flag featured prominently throughout the video, in case you could mistake the location for anywhere else in the world (as if!) and for most of the video one of the brother sings from a rooftop location giving a bird´s eye view of Havana and the Havana Bay.

Oh, and of course, old classic American cars of the 50s are not amiss. For a good part of the video both brothers are seen sitting on the bonnet or leaning against (or singing/dancing in front) of one of these four-wheeled relics that Cubans are so proud of. Three of these famous “almendrones” are showcased in fact, and each model featured in the video is different, so yant tank lovers are in for an eye feast.

The aptly named “Señorita” (a nod to the Spanish-speaking country it is shot in) video even features the city´s famous bicitaxis at the end, and a large mural of Che Guevara with the Cuban flag in the background and his eponymous words: “Hasta la Victoria Siempre!” The video has it all, even a kiss to the John Lennon statue that sits on the fittingly named Parque Lennon.

Beating Maroon 5 and Enrique Iglesias to it, who allegedly will also soon be shooting their next music video in Cuba, the Portuguese duo got there first and paved the way for their American and Spanish counterparts, who now have got their work cut out to make theirs even more stunning. We can only wait and see, but you’ll bet we’ll be writing about it when the time for Maroon 5’s debut music video in Cuba finally comes. But before that happens we have Enrique Iglesias' Cuban music video shoot to look forward to first, as rumour has it filming will begin in the last week of August. Queue in drum roll please.
