4 stars This is a great complement to the already great music. In this DVD, we will find all the videos from all the songs included in Govea's debut album entitled "Danza Urbana", which I highly recommend. There is an introduction to this video, in which you will read pieces of some reviews from different parts of the world, expressing positively about Govea; here you can read them on Spanish or English, which was a great decision.

All the videos are directed by Julio Salinas. In "Danza Urbana" I like a lot how it starts, with the trio in the top of a building inviting you to enter to their own World. Once you are here, you will not escape until the very end. The video may be actually quite simple, you will only see the band performing and that's it, but I enjoy watching their faces and gestures, they always say something. In "Continuum" there is a fictional world, with the band stood on a giant keyboard and with the sky as background.

I imagine that the room on "Claroscuro" is actually their rehearsal and recording room, so it is an intimate stage for the band. The video actually follows the same line as the previous ones, it is only the band playing. The same stage is used in "Convergentes" but the difference here is that it is combined with images of the environment taken from a flight. In "Falsa Dicotomía" the images are from the band playing in a concert, though it is not actually a live-video. Here the director makes a collage and plays with different edition elements.

"Intersecciones" is a different kind of video, here the band does not appear performing, instead we can watch a paper and some kind of drawings in which the band appear as a part of that fictional world. This is a pretty interesting video. And in "Concertino" the concept returns to their studio room, and it actually does not offer anything new. The videos are a good complement to the music, and I like them, but I prefer only listening to the CD and put my own images in my mind.

This DVD also features an exquisite interview with a recognized Mexican journalist, in which Govea talks about their formation, ideas, ambitions and several topics that help us understanding them better. The inclusion of this interview is a highlight, and a great decision by the band. I highly recommend you their CD, but if you have the chance, I also recommend you this DVD. My final grade will be 4 stars.

Enjoy it!
