Chromium Music Group is delighted to have provided the music for Channel 4’s Warrior Women with Lupita Nyong’o, produced by SandStone Global Productions. Airing on Wednesday 23rd October, Warrior Women, which was presented by oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o received critical acclaim with the Financial Times awarding the documentary 5 stars. Composers Thomas Farnon and Baba Adefuye worked closely with the producers to deliver a score that would enrich the story told of the all-female army.
Thomas explains, “Baba and I approached this project with a huge amount of excitement. It is so visually stunning with wide panoramic shots, so early on we wanted to match that with the music whilst still keeping the beautiful intimacy of Lupita’s storytelling at the forefront.” He continued, “After discussions with the creative team we decided to try to integrate the actual voices of the real warrior women we encounter through the documentary. We weaved those voices into a musical tapestry that I hope gives the music authenticity and helps ground the viewer in Benin.”
You can hear a glimpse of the score above or alternatively, Warrior Women is available to watch on All4 On Demand until 22nd November 2019.
