Iceland has a long tradition of Nordic myths and folk tales, many involving spirits and animals transforming themselves into people. So, it’s not too surprising that a band like Of Monsters and Men would call their debut album, “My Head is an Animal,” and create a song like “Dirty Paws,” about an epic battle between the birds and the bees and a four-pawed beast that saves the day.
Join the musicians from the PBS Summer Arts Festival documentary "Havana, Havana!" as they perform the song "Ni De Aqui" live in Havana, Cuba. Written by David Torrens and performed by Raul Paz, David Torrens, Kelvis Ochoa and Descemer Bueno
You’ve probably heard this song on the radio this summer. To the band’s amazement, it’s a worldwide hit. “It’s even big in Turkey,” they told us, shaking their collective heads, pleasantly bewildered. But it’s easy to see why the song has caught on with its rolling, infectious energy, that chorus of “heys!” and a foreboding lyric that ends up reassuring us we’re all going to make it back safely.
