Taking A Look At The Music Behind Netflix Blockbuster ‘Narcos’ With Composer Pedro Bromfman + The Wonderfully Curated ‘More Music From’ Soundtrack Albums

narcos-season-2-key-art-cropped_600

Netflix juggernaut Narcos has been inescapable over the past two years for a number of reasons. The performances delivered by Wagner Moura (Pablo Escobar), Boyd Holbrook (DEA agent Steve Murphy), Pedro Pascal (DEA agent Javier Peña) and Paulina Gaitán (Tata Escobar) have all been widely acknowledged as some of the finest of this or any age.

The show, which works on numerous levels has become as addictive as something the real Mr Escobar may have tried to export during the decadent 1980s. Within the story of one man against seemingly all others lays the story of a dedicated family man who will stop at nothing to provide everything he can whilst taking on the entire country of Columbia, other drug cartels and the U.S government. While there have been other attempts to tell the Escobar story, it has been the phenomenal writing of Chris Brancati and the skilled direction of José Padilha that have really set Narcos apart as one of the most must see television shows around.

The attention to detail is second to none, and this is none more prevalent than when discussing the music composed for and used within season one and two (both currently available on Netflix) of Narcos. The scores for both seasons were composed by award winning composer Pedro Bromfman (Elite Squad, Robocop) and whilst they are able to help weave the musical tapestry of Pablo Escobar’s rise and fall, they also work as a standalone listening experiences away from the show.

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Pedro to discuss Narcos and his career to date for an episode of The Lakeshore Records Podcast. This was recorded shortly before season 2 hit the airwaves, and Pedro was gracious enough to delve into the sonic soundscape of 1980s Medellín and breakdown his approach to scoring the show.

 

Bromfman’s score for seasons [ONE] and [TWO] are available now digitally, with the vinyl for season one being released through our partners Invada.

“During season one of Narcos, we discovered a wealth of Colombian and Latin music and are excited to share it outside the context of the series,” said music supervisor Liza Richardson. “We took care to make sure the song choices were authentic to the times and characters and we hope the music connects you to the rich culture depicted in Narcos.”
