Gustavo Santaolalla - Iguazu

Gustavo Santaolalla - Babel soundtrack Iguazu notes: As incidental music for the movie Babel and the first season of Deadwood, Gustavo Santaolalla's Iguazu evokes images, for me at least, of desolate landscapes and the hard faces of the 19th century American west. The landscapes in this video include the Painted Desert and the Badlands. The faces in order: Reverend Smith (murdered in Deadwood for preaching), a Comanche warchief, James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok, Wild Bill (again), Wild Bill's grave, Seth Bullock, Sitting Bull, anonymous hanged man, Calamity Jane, Jesse James, dead Jesse James, Geronimo, Buffalo Bill Cody, George Armstrong Custer, reunion of Custer's Crow scouts, Billy the Kid. Enjoy...

I heard this music in THE INSIDER ( Al pacino & Russel Crowe) when doc wigand decides to give his testimony in court - the movie was released in - 1999
The One Freeman
Shits going down in Deadwood.
This was in the masterpiece called INSIDER
Linda Nolan
I love all of his theme music - Deadwood, 21 Grams, Motorcycle Diaries, Babel, etc.
Jiggley Krowzer
This is so beautiful yet haunting... I love how it doesn't even come on until AFTER the climax where Wild Bill is shot.  Such perfect music for such a perfect show.  This is serious guitar skill..
Benjamin Cardoza
It's also in the pilot episode of '24' and in Michael Mann's film 'The Insider.' Suffice to say that Gustavo Santaolalla's work is very highly praised, especially in the film industry.
Daniel Corredor
It is not flamenco guitar is a Roncoco from the Andes in South America and part of Andean music nothing to do with North America or Europe

J'ai écouté ce titre devant les chutes d'Iguazu pendant des heures en boucle lors d'un voyage en Argentine. L'émotion ressentie devant la beauté brute et sauvage du site couplée à ce morceau m'a amené vers des rivages enchantés. :)

25 people have black hearts and no soul. This piece is masterful.
Mudder Fukker
Amazing how many great movies and shows have used this piece, and how much it can evoke with that simple 3 note melody from the section that's always used.
Karen Eng
Neat song and video! Thanks for sending mindfulmusic78!

The charango sounds very good

It's great, but I bet it's inspired by Dead Can Dance - Musica Eternal.
Toth Istvan
this piece was just stunning in the ending scenes of BABEL.
This song was also used in "The Insider", a Michael Mann movie starring Russell Crowe as a chemist loses his family, job and income by standing up to big tobacco as whistleblower to 60 minutes. It's a very sad, melancholy film, so for me the song is as much about loss, contemplation and personal reflection as it is about anything specific, such as the 19th century American west. Although it could also be about death. Not the actual but virtual "death" of his family in the "The Insider", the actual death of Wild Bill James Butler Hickok in Deadwood, the death of the American West and rebirth into something new....these are some great images in the video thank that Red Rocks Arizona at 1:35?
You can hear this soundtrack in "friday night lights" season 1 episode 16 at the end :)

esta música se escucho en dos capítulos del unitario argentino mujeres asesinas

Heard this in the performance Romeo and Juliet in the Circus @ Sziget 2017. What a masterpiece!

Nothing but noise as taught today to music composition major professors. I'm surprised this didn't have some hammer on railroad track sound. Guess he missed that class.

perfect ;)
I've listened this one on James Bond Quantumo of Solace too and one episode of the tv show 24.
What instrument is this? I have a guitar, acoustic steel, acoustic nylon, acoustic 12 string, bass, and banjo and I don't think it is any of those..
I came here from a video about the Twilight Zone movie deaths. This song is rather chilling to me now.
drapetomaniac.   UMT was created due to the fact there are plenty of great singers/bands/Dj's that have amazing music to give and not enough people to support them. So,i've decided to create this page here and post every kind of music i find interesting and believe it should be heard,hopefully you will do the same!
Remi P
I think it's the same instrument used in the soundtrack of The last of us
was also in the movie The Insider

Yuri muckraker
just a great piece of music from one of the finest films ever crafted about a true story
Yuri muckraker
yes it does have a somber feel to it no doubt
Yuri muckraker
i'm glad! its a great piece of music, and everytime I hear it, I think "whistleblowers risking it all to tell the truth" and "fuck it, let's go to court" hehe!
Damn straight! When I was playing TLOU, the first thing thar came to mind was Insider.
I knew the music in The Last of Us sounded familiar. Reminded me of Babel so much.
I feel highly melancholic when listening this. You stop, listen and think of all the things that happened to you. Now, and in the past. The mistakes you made, the good times. And slowly you expand to the futility of it all, how meaningless life actually is in the grand scheme of things.
Yuri muckraker
cheers to it then! insider is an epic film, and this piece of music really moves your soul and makes you feel the skin and intense stress that whistleblower must've felt. and I just think we need to give credit where its due, this song was first used in insider, and then afterwards babel and deadwood.
Yuri muckraker
fuck babel and deadwood, insider was where I heard this powerful piece of music. fuck it lets go to court.
I'll never forget the Insider.

The Comanche chief (pictured) is Quanah Parker. Nice flow and imagery for this outstanding composition.
Just Nadaaa
Reminds me of Dexter:)
its a charango, more specifically a ronroco
Al Corrupt
If this doesn't make you feel something... I weep for you.
Antonio Brandao
your comment is beautiful and heartfelt, I reply just to clarify that it is not Flamenco. Flamenco is a very specific kind of music. This kind of guitar is his own style and has roots in Latin South American guitar and harmonies, which in turn has deep distant roots in their Spanish ancestors and thus, Flamenco, but really far.
it is not a flamenco guitar
no wonder, it is full of minor key harmonies...

It shouldn't be weird. It's a sad sounding tune. It opens up with a mysterious feel, with a mostly neutral and simple chord progression, but the texture of which makes it feel mysterious. Then it shifts into a somewhat sad progression. It's not immensely sad, but the textures and styles of playing definitely enhance that. I used to have a better grasp on my musical terminology, but if you study musical composition, even as an amateur, it would make more sense to you.
Michael Koullas
the insider :)....michael mann at his finest form :)
bring back deadwood hbo-cocksuckers!
your comment makes sense its more like a sad prayer it stirs emotions-haunting- santanas let us go into the house of the lord is just as brilliant but is far more moving and full of joy
Matt D
awesome simple.

Este tema lo ponían mucho en Mujeres asesinas...
Felix Ayodele
Great Visuals to Accompany The Story !!!
Eric Williamson
What a brilliant song. Hypnotic, dark, brooding - makes me think of a phantom cowboy!
Ron Burr
It's also used in the 1st episode of the 1st season of 24. Talk about your polar opposite shows. Sign of a great piece of music that it works so well for both.
François G.
Yep. I just see "The next 3 days", one more amazing ost for Russel Crowe ! :)
holy song

For me it resembles a new start, or beginning a journey. Scarred but always pushing forward as the song progresses.
