Rodrigo Amarante at the Cedar on 6/16 (Preview)


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 and Tom Zé, Amarante just released his stunning first solo album “Cavalo”on May 6th. He will be at the Cedar Cultural Center on 6/16. Tickets are available HERE
