Musician Rodrigo Amarante is a former member of both Rio’s iconic Los Hermanos and LA's Little Joy with Binki Shapiro and Fabrizio Moretti of the Strokes. He is also a regular member of Devendra Banhart’s band. Rodrigo's solo project is a sweet exploration of intimacy and vastness, as evidenced in his masterpiece Cavalo.
He spoke to us about why he loves the Czech filmmaker Milos Forman, why Peter Sellers cracks him up, and the music of Caetano Veloso. Follow Rodrigo on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram,
