||Kite Runner CD (2007) |
Sami Yusuf CD discography Khaled Hosseini's best-selling novel THE KITE RUNNER was turned into a critically acclaimed 2007 film. Its soundtrack contributes to the overall power of the screen adaptation, and provides a memorable listening experience on its own. The album comprises the rich and heady score by Alberto Iglesias (known primarily for scoring Pedro Almovodar's films) that blends the exotic appeal of Afghani music with more Western themes, as well as some stand-alone tracks by popular Afghani artists Ahmad Zahir and Ehsan Aman. The presence of these two respected musicians represents their respective recording comebacks, another distinctive feature of the collection.
Composer: Alberto Iglesias.
Personnel: Sussan Deyhim (vocals).
