Title - 'City Of Men' (Lakeshore Records)
Artist - Antonio Pinto
The wondrous new soundtrack for 'City Of Men' features original music by Golden Globe-nominated composer Antonio Pinto (LOVE AND DEATH IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA) and takes us on a continuing musical journey that began in 2002 when we were introduced to the horrors of the slums of Rio de Janeiro.
Brazilian composer Antonio Pinto made his domestic debut in Brazil in 1994, but first attracted international attention for his work on 'CENTRAL STATION' in 1998. Four years later he composed the music for 'CITY OF GOD.'
Named "Discovery of the Year" at the 2003 World Soundtrack Awards/Flanders International Film Festival whilst also being nominated for a Golden Globe award for the song "Despedida" - which he co-wrote with Shakira - Pinto's latest work returns us and producer Fernando Meirelles to the Brazilian favelas of their Academy Award -nominated film, 'CITY OF GOD.'
