For the score of “Mudbound”, director Dee Rees turned to Brooklyn underground rock singer-composer Tamar-kali, who performed in “Pariah” and “Bessie.” “I artistically respect her and wanted to work with her in a bigger way,” [Rees] said. “We screened it together, we had a temp score. I said three words to her: ancestors and dark strings. She wrote something beautiful and elaborated on the musical themes. She wrote every note of music.” More insides to the movie and the score are on IndieWire.
