First Watch: Rodrigo Amarante, 'I'm Ready'

On this week'sAll Songs Considered we play a new song from Brazilian Rodrigo Amarante. The song is the backdrop to the opening sequence to a new Netflix original series called Narcos, which rolls out today. It's based on the life of drug lord Pablo Escobar and the Medellín Cartel.

This week Rodrigo Amarante has also released a new video for the song "I'm Ready," from his last album,Cavalo, one of my top three records of 2014. 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.
