Rodrigo y Gabriela y Hans Zimmer For Pirates of the Caribbean

Hans Zimmer ("Inception," "The Lion King"), composer for the three previous "Pirates of the Caribbean" films, has collaborated with guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela on the soundtrack for the latest film in the franchise.

Walt Disney Records will release the original motion picture soundtrack for Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films' Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides on May 17, 2011.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides has a distinctive Latin flavor. Zimmer said, "We have Penelope Cruz playing Angelica, who's Spanish, so I felt that there could be some Latin influences in the score for On Stranger Tides."

To achieve this, Zimmer reached out to Rodrigo y Gabriela. "I've been a big fan of Mexican guitarists Rodrigo y Gabriela for years now," said Zimmer, "and I asked them if they wanted to come and play with us. We've been having a really great time with them being part of the musical world this film gets to inhabit."

For a key scene in the film, featuring a highly choreographed Tango between Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz, Hans Zimmer collaborated not only with Rodrigo y Gabriela but also Eduardo Cruz —Penelope's brother, an up-and-coming composer/songwriter. Also imparting a Latin flavor to the music is legendary jazz great Arturo Sandoval. The Cuban born, four-time Grammy Award–winner is the featured trumpet player for the score.
