SOCIAL MEDIA

Today, clients want music to communicate across many platforms. For Jaguar at Play, we first expanded the original 30 second instrumental into a 60 second version.  Then we created a full length pop song with lyrics in English and Spanish for use in social media. 

From ad.

To song.

El Remedio (The Remedy)
Music: Anthony Marinelli, Lyrics/Vocals: Asdru Sierra of Ozomatli
