On the July 11th edition of “Future Daze,” special guest Rodrigo Amarante performed and shared stories over the course of the hour, appearing live from Studio A.

We are happy to announce that a video segment of Amarante’s appearance is now online below — as well as a more complete audio recording of the program, which is available for streaming or download.

His well-received debut solo album, Cavalo, was released this past May on Easy Sound Records. Amarante was formerly with the popular Brazilian rock group Los Hermanos and the samba big band supergroup Orquesta Imperial. He is also well known for his collaborations with Devendra Banhart, and for forming indie group Little Joy with Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti and Binki Shapiro.

Former “Future Daze” hosts Luna y Mr. Supersonico, alongside new host Marisa Ho, were very excited to welcome the acclaimed artist to KCSB-FM at the University of California Santa Barbara campus.

Special thanks to Brandon Chow for co-producing this video.
