His music placements include: “Tax Collector”, “Breaking Bad”, “Bull”, “Dusk Till Dawn” and “Looking”. Llano, Llanero, Lloron is a collaboration between Cuñao and Beat Chamber founders Jonathan Merkel & Danny Osuna.

The creative result is “una mezcla”- a mixture of the American West, the South American Plains, and a lot of groove.
