Rodrigo Amarante is an inescapable musical figure in Brazil. Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, he is one of the masterminds of the band Los Hermanos, a founding member of the samba super-group Orquestra Imperial and has collaborated with Brazilian icons such as Tom Zé, Gilberto Gil and Marisa Monte. In Europe and the United States he has enjoyed success with Little Joy (the band he formed with Fabrizio Moretti from The Strokes and Binki Shapiro), whose eponymous album was released worldwide in 2009 via Rough Trade.

Having played shows across the globe in 2013 opening for Devendra Banhart (with whom he has been recording and playing live since 2007), Rodrigo Amarante released his debut solo album ‘Cavalo’ in 2014.

This album stayed kind of unknown. I find it purely beautiful. There is no reason for it to go down in music history. But after all, isn't it all about listening to songs? Well, an album recommended to song listeners. And cover art experts. :)
