Carlos’s international career started with the recording of a Galician tune for the soundtrack to Treasure Island with the Chieftains in 1989 at 18 years of age.
He has participated in many soundtracks since. If one were to be highlighted, it would likely be the Oscar award winning “Mar Adentro” (The Sea Inside), filmed on the vast coasts of Galicia featuring Academy award winning actor Javier Bardem embodying the role of a handsome Galician fisherman who, after a near death experience, becomes a quadriplegic.
The music was composed by Alejandro Amenábar, the film director himself, along with strong imput from Carlos and his band. Please see here a live version.
