NPR’s Bob Boilen picking up on the upcoming Rodrigo Amarante debut, Cavalo. Here, he features the opening track, Nada Em Vão. Visit his Weekly Rainbows blog and give a listen!
It starts with such mystery: a whistle in the dark, a melody struck softly and then that voice, singing seemingly just to me. Rodrigo Amarante sings in Portuguese; I don’t know the language, but the emotion is stark and clear. The saxophone slays me. You may know Rodrigo a member of the Brazilian/American band Little Joy or the Rio de Janeiro rock band Los Hermanos. His first solo album Cavalo is out May 6. “Nada Em Vão” is the opening cut.
Cavalo is out in US/Canada on 5/6!
