Narcos, the soundtrack

The following post contains absolutely no spoils, scout’s honor. (Ok, so Pablo dies but that’s the last one, honest.) So, let’s talk about the good stuff and, by good stuff, we mean the music.

First, Netflix dropped the trailer for season 2, with Pablo being Pablo on Styx’s Renegade, and it sent internet into a frenzy.

Then last friday, Netflix delivered us from our misery and released the second season of Narcos. Awesome scenes with awesome music like Tuyo by Rodrigo Amarante took us on a trip to Medellin. We laughed. We cried. We loved it.

The winning formula hasn’t changed much from Season 1 and Narcos still contains some of the best vintage Colombian music around: salsa, vallenato, palenque. The production company even sought out some of Colombia’s most notorious labels and delved into their back catalog for a historically accurate soundtrack. Vengeance definitely tastes sweeter with cumbia.

Bonus: We got in early with Rodrigo Amarante in our Deezer session:
