The album features music inspired by the movie 'Inxeba (The Wound).'
João Orecchia, one third of the South African band Motèl Mari, made music inspired by the South African movie, Inxeba (The Wound), some of which made it to the film. The soundtrack is now available, and it features remixes by RMBO (BLK JKS, Motèl Mari), Motèl Mari and Magnifera. It features the vocalists Rouge and Naty Kaly.
The 7-track album is called Alihlekwa: Inxeba (Remixes and Outakes), and is available both digitally and on cassette (for the collectors).
NYC-based vocalist Rouge contacted Orecchia after watching the movie, expressing her interest in one of the songs. She recorded vocals over it. The song in the soundtrack she's featured in is called "The Wound (Magnifera Remix)."
Most of the music on the project is experimental electronic. It boasts the same intensity as the movie, and is dramatic, depicting different moods, ranging from suspenseful to eerie and even jovial. If you've watched Inxeba (The Wound), which was on circuit in February, you'll recognize some of the music in the album.
