TAMAR KALI TEAMS UP WITH DEE REES TO SCORE ‘MUDBOUND’

Songwriter, musician, rocker, Tamar Kali teamed up with award-winning director, Dee Rees to score Mudbound. Tamar made an appearance and contributed to the soundtrack of Dee Rees’, Pariah. This time Tamar scored the entire project, which was an official selection of the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, where it sold to Netflix for 12.5 million dollars.  The film has received 12 major nominations in the 2018 awards season, including an Oscar nom for Best Picture.

Mudbound is the story of two men – one white, one Black – who return home to rural Mississippi from World War II. They forge a friendship based on their shared war experiences, as they struggle to deal with racism and adjusting to life after war. In an interview with Billboard, Director Dee Rees, said,  “My hope for this score is that it would sound like it bubbled up from the earth, that it was ‘in the trees,’ and would simultaneously evoke the indifference of nature and the resilience of humanity. Tamar-kali did just that. She made the rocks cry out.”
