Pedro Bromfman has also received significant support from his fans, with his play count sitting at just under 20 million across platforms.

With a sound that sits closely to the likes of Hans Zimmer, Ólafur Arnalds, Sigur Rós and even Mogwai, it’s easy to see why he’s quickly gaining recognition.
Beyond the mists of tall mountains and rolling seas, there lies Yara, a fictional tropical paradise frozen in time in the heart of the Caribbean. It’s here that adventure calls to your heart and soul: where you have the power to reshape the destinies of both yourself and the people in the island. Pedro Bromfman highlights the Latin and Caribbean elements found within Yara while pairing them with modern electronic-classical compositions in the theatrical soundtrack for Far Cry 6. ‘Libertad’ is a powerful melody, full of beauty and longing created to highlight the anthemic struggle for freedom both young and old face.
Speaking of the creation of the album, Pedro Bromfman tells us: “The album is based on a very modern score, drenched in lush soundscapes, driving percussion, processed organic instruments and a ton of synthesizers. We tried to capture the soul of Yara, and its characters, by rooting the score on traditional Latin American and Caribbean music, while being completely free to experiment with contemporary sounds, elements and techniques, in hopes of creating something very fresh and unique. The score for Far Cry 6 overflows with distinctive, haunting melodies and character themes, accompanying and further immersing the players in their amazing journey through Yara. A journey full of beauty, violence, adrenaline and passion.’”
