Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Music by Michael Stearns
Featuring “Host of Seraphim,” performed by Dead Can Dance.
This deluxe soundtrack reissue to the award-winning 1992 classic docudrama, BARAKA, features an original score by renowned composer Michael Stearns. He accents the film’s theme with an array of world music influences and new age ambience. In addition, the soundtrack features music by Dead Can Dance, L. Subramaniam, Ciro Hurtado, Inkuyo, Brother and David Hykes. BARAKA was directed by Ron Fricke and produced by Mark Magidson.
BARAKA, the epic non-verbal film, tells the story of the earth’s evolution, man’s diversity and interconnection, and his impact on the planet. The film takes the listener on a world tour of cultural (and natural) experiences. Displaying the cyclical nature of life, BARAKA moves through the mystery and fascination of natural phenomena to the serenity of Third World culture and, ultimately, the ferocity of industrialization. The film was shot in 70mm in 24 countries on six continents, in such diverse locations as Brazil, Nepal, Cambodia, Kuwait, India, Tanzania and Iran.
BARAKA was one of the most acclaimed international releases of its time. The film won the International Film Critics Jury Award for “Best Picture” at its world premier at the Montreal Film Festival in 1992.
Unlike the previous editions of the soundtrack this deluxe reissue features the full-length versions of many of the key tracks featured in the film.
