AFRICA by Brown Rice Family
Captured in front of WARUDE, a multi-cuisine restaurant that sits on Tompkins Ave in Bed-Stuy, the world roots band got all the attention––stopping traffic and attracting local families to come dance.
What is U Capture?
U Capture is a series of live music videos shot in the streets of New York. It provides independent bands, such as Combo Chimbita, with a professional and high-quality recording of their live performance that opens new gigs, radio and festival opportunities. For example, the sound recording of the capture of “Lekeel” by Ensamble Calavera was featured in the international CD compilation “#Yosoyska” from Mexico in 2019.
Our team produces a live-music video at a unique urban location. The capture is about the band, the music, and the environment. Documenting the location’s identity and diversity, the concept behind the shot is to be professional yet imperfect. Uncut and dirty, the shooting highlights the city’s environment in its entirety. Unexpected sounds and visitors, dogs barking, the subway train arriving, trash cans, and sirens; it’s all there to create an authentic picture of the city.
Who do they serve?
Crumble by Bad Buka
On the rooftop of Studio 108 in Bushwick, the drone captured the spirit of the gypsy punk band and the warm colors of the neighborhood despite the freezing cold.

Leekel by Ensamble Calavera
After climbing through a window with instruments and equipment onto a deck, this Latin ska capture was energetic, warm and pretty buzzed.
Señores de la Guerra by The Impostors Band
Shot in an outlying neighborhood in Bogotá, Colombia, the ska band and production team climbed through an unfinished building to get to the rooftop. We entertained the kids in school in the building next door.
Tamborero by Combo Chimbita
This tropical futurism capture was the only one shot with an analog tape machine. It features Woody enjoying the live music at El Búnker in Bushwick. Since then, Woody waves his hands in the air and calls us “Tamborero”.
Darlin You by Outlaw Ritual
Our first capture, this was shot at El Búnker during the summertime. From the dog becoming a member of the band to the confused people next door trying to find where our sound was coming from, this capture was all laughs.
