His score combines modal jazz, a variety of African musical instruments and styles, and a rhythm section made up found objects. In doing so brought together a roster of legendary musicians who’s paths have all travelled across the Afro-jazz landscape including Shabaka Hutchings (Sons of Kemet), Marshall Allen (Sun Ra Arkestra), Idris Ackamoor (The Pyramids) and Umar Bin Hassan (The Last Poets). Ram’s music for the film won the International Documentary Association’s “2022 Best Music Score” award that was presented him at its gala ceremony in L.A. in December, 2022.
