World music from films
Wo kaun Ti, Orfeu Negro, Undergound, Gegen die Wand, Gadjo Dilo, Slumdog Millionaire… Put out the popcorn, because this broadcast is all about film. With music which is specially written for the story, such as Samba de Orfeo by Luiz Bonfa and with music that has just been borrowed by the film makers. Such as Willeke Alberti’s ‘Morgen ben ik de bruid’ that is sung by one of the characters in the film Simon.
In the case of Japanese singer and actress Meiko Kaji her music led to a true revival because of the interest of a film maker. Quintin Tarantino was inspired by the Japanese film Lady Snowblood (Shurayukihime) from 1973 for the two parts of Kill Bill.
Based on a manga Lady Snowblood tells the story about murderess Yuki who bloodily avenges her family. Meiko Kaji did not only play Yuki, but also sang the title song Shura No Hana. Flower of Carnage, like it was translated by Tarantino, is to be heard at the end of the fight scene between the leading character and O Ren-Ishii. With the snow covered decor and this victory song this scene refers to Lady Snowblood.
