This weekend I saw "Wadjda" in the theatre (more on that later) and afterwards I just had to check out the soundtrack right away.

"Wadjda: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" (16 tracks; 32 min.) brings primarily the music composed for the movie by British composer Max Richter. Richter is best known for his soundtracks of Prometheus, Disconnect, and many others. However, the soundtrack opens with "Wadjda Opening Titles", an a-cappella song in Arabic. Then we get "Waiting" a 1 min. Richter composition and it immediately captivates you with the warm dulcimer sound that is prominent throughout the movie and hence this soundtrack. The only other non-Richter track follows, namely Grouplove's "Tongue Tied" (from its 2011 excellent debut album "Never Trust A Happy Song"), which in the movie Wadjda is listening to on the radio, much to the dismay of her mother, who yells at Wadjda to turn off this 'evil music'. The remainder of the soundtrack is the instrumental score by Richter, many of which are in the 1 to 2 min. range but as a big fan of ducilmer music, I found myself entirely captivated by it. (It reminded me more than once of a band called Metamora, which released a number of outstanding dulcimer-heavy albums on the Windham Hill label some 20 years ago.) Please note that not every single track features the dulcimer. But bottom line: this is nothing short of an outstanding soundtrack, and even more so if you like the dulcimer sound.

As to the movie: it is a compelling and at times heart-breaking look into the lives of a young girl called Wadjda and her mother as they live their ordinary lives in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
