Alexandra Benedict & Tris Taylor: Habibti – Original Soundtrack

This is the second in a series of soundtrack releases by Alexandra Benedict & Tris Taylor.

Nick Luscombe recently played the first on BBC Radio 3's "Late Junction."

'Habibti' is a comedy drama about a clash of Arab, West Indian and British cultures, starring Hiam Abbass (The Visitor). 

Here is the film's log line:

"Iman (Hiam Abbass), a conservative Arab woman, 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."

Award-winning director Nour Wazzi turned to composers Alexandra Benedict and Tris Taylor for music, briefing them to use instruments from Africa, the Middle East and Europe to reflect and deepen the film’s characters and narrative.

The resulting score gradually intertwines qanun and piano refrains as Iman and Marlon begin to get to know and understand each other. 

'Habibti' went on to sweep awards and citations at film festivals in Africa, Europe, and both North and South America.
