Yet another segment in my sporadic posts prompted by an intriguing use of music in film. This movie is remarkable – the storytelling, the animation. It combines different types of music, but one repeated motif is the animation of very early jazz (I think?) recordings of one Annette Hanshaw. Don’t know anything about her, but it’s an interesting idea. I think the movie might have offended some people, because it claims to be based on the Ramayana, and perhaps the telling wasn’t entirely faithful. Anyway, fascinating telling of a good story. It seems the whole thing is on youTube.
