“For Somebody’s Sake” is one of our favorite cumbias to play. It’s exciting and visceral. I was pretending to be John Lennon when I wrote and recorded this song, he was the master of hopeful aggression. This is the first video to include dancers, we asked some of our closest fans to come and be a part of the experience. We shot the video in a 1920’s school gym in Martindale, TX. It was such a blast. — David Beck
