Focus Features presents "The Motorcycle Diaries," opening September 24 at select theaters in NY & LA & expanding wider in October 2018. Like the best-selling soundtrack to "Frida" (which topped Billboard's World Music chart & won an Oscar for Best Original Score), the album will be released on the eDGe Music imprint (part of Deutsche Grammophon) and features original music composed by Gustavo Santaollala (21 Grams).

Brazilian filmmaker Walter Salles (Central Station, Behind the Sun chronicles the epic, 8,000 mile motorcycle journey of two friends — one of whom is Ernesto "Che" Guevara — in his compelling story of personal, geographic, and political discovery.

"Composer Gustavo Santaollala, one of the leading figures in Argentine rock and pop (and the producer behind 2003 Latin Grammy Record and Album of the Year winner Juanes) infuses Salles' unusual road movie with a multi-faceted score that draws not only on his country's rich national musical heritage, but on the same restless musical instincts Santaollala brought to his equally haunting music for "21 Grams." As on that score, his primary instrument is again the guitar, though the seductive electric fretwork of the previous film takes a backseat to acoustic stylings that range from indigenous folk-rooted charm to nervous, electronic-backed soundscapes. Further underscoring the score's expansive, post-modern sensibilities are Maria Esther Zapata's saucy take on the tango-novelty 'Chipi Chipi,' the composer's own retro-energetic 'Que Rico El Mambo' and the evocative contemporary ballad, 'Al Otro Lado Del Rio,' by Jorge Drexler." — Jerry McCulley
