Out now – Alexandra Benedict & Tris Taylor: Habibti – Original Soundtrack [PLM Soundtracks]
Scripted by BAFTA-winner Daniel Fajemisin-Duncan from a story by Oscar nominee Ari Folman (Waltz with Bashir) and award-winning director Nour Wazzi, Habibti went on to sweep awards and citations at film festivals in Africa, Europe, and both North and South America.
Habibti follows Iman (Hiam Abbass), a conservative Arab woman who travels to London to visit her estranged daughter Amira (Yasmine Al-Massri) only to find her living with her boyfriend… a black artist named Marlon (Jimmy Akingbola). Their conflict brings humour and with it an unlikely bond.
The score by composers A.K. Benedict & Tris Taylor uses instruments from Africa, the Middle East and Europe (qanun, piano, duduk, darabuka and tongue drum) to reflect and deepen the film’s characters and narrative.
