Rodrigo Amarante Nominated for Emmy for Narcos Theme, US Tour With Angel Olsen Announced

Rodrigo Amarante recieves Emmy nomination for ‘Tuyo’, written and performed as the theme for Netflix original series ‘Narcos’

Announces US Tour Dates with Angel Olsen

Listen to recent album ‘Cavalo’

‘The track, custom written for the series, debuted at No. 13 on Latin Digital Songs in the chart dated Sept. 19 and No. 6 on Latin Pop Digital Songs. It’s Amarante’s first charting song, but we get the feeling it won’t be his last.’ – Billboard

Easy Sound artist Rodrigo Amarante will soon embark on a coast-to-coast US tour with indie rock favourite Angel Olsen, shortly after the announcement of his Emmy nomination for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music for his work on Netflix original series ‘Narcos’.

Amarante, a national hero in Brazil for his work in iconic Brazilian band Los Hermanos — came to the US in 2007 to play in Devendra Banhart’s band. He quickly became widely known for his project with The Strokes’ Fabrizio Moretti and Binki Shapiro – Little Joy and released his critically acclaimed solo album Cavalo in 2014 on the Easy Sound Recording Company label.

On the heels of Cavalo’s success, Rodrigo Amarante was asked to contribute the theme song to the hit Netflix series ‘Narcos’. His song ‘Tuyo’ can be heard during the opening credits to the show, another stunning example of Amarante’s emotive writing and musical craftsmanship.

Watch ‘I’m Ready’

‘The video is a single shot of Rodrigo performing the song in the cavernous Cisterna de Marvão in Portugal. It’s a romantic and wistful introduction to a very talented and singular musician.’ – NPR
