Besides introducing people of color in strong roles, the film has also produced an equally powerful soundtrack, curated by Kendrick Lamar. But another important music component for the Marvel film is the score, which was created by the Grammy-nominated composer Ludwig Göransson. In the video above, created by Genius, Göransson explains how he crafted the scoring track “Wakanda,” named after the fictional East African nation the Black Panther rules over.
“People have been waiting for this movie forever, this is culturally something that has never been done before,” states Göransson. Watch the full Deconstructed episode above and stream Black Panther (Original Score) soundtrack here and Black Panther: The Album below.
Göransson is also a longtime collaborator of Childish Gambino (Donald Glover) as well, helping him produce hits such as “Redbone,” “Me And Your Mama” and “Freaks And Geeks,” among others. In case you’ve missed it, Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o and Michael B. Jordan answer the most-searched for questions.
