We wanna send you to see Rodrigo Amarante perform during the Huichica Fest!
Rodrigo Amarante de Castro Neves is Brazilian, born in Rio de Janeiro. He is part of the bands Los Hermanos, Orquestra Imperial and Little Joy and has released his first solo record “Cavalo” in Brazil in late 2013 and in the rest of the world in May 2014. In 2015 he wrote a song in Spanish, “Tuyo,” as the opening theme for the Netflix series “Narcos.” Rodrigo Amarante was inspired by the thought of what kind of music Pablo Escobar’s mother would have listened to when raising her son.
One of the masterminds behind Brazilian band Los Hermanos and founding member of the samba supergroup Orquestra Imperial, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rodrigo Amarante is an inescapable musical figure in his native South American home. Breaking out of the Brazilian market in 2008, alongside friends Fabrizio Moretti and Binki Shapiro, Amarante formed the group Little Joy and the trio released their self titled debut album which gained critical acclaim in the US and worldwide. Living in the US since then and recording and performing with such artists as Devendra Banhart, Gilberto Gil, Adam Green, Tom Zé, and Marisa Monte, Amarante is now ready to release his stunning first solo album “Cavalo”, which was released worldwide on May 6th.
