The Black Prince & 5 Other Scintillating Soundtracks Of 2017

Anokhi Buzz Music Jul 20, 2017

Music tends to shape the emotional journey of a film and culturally iconic soundtracks from movies like The Black Prince will leave you spellbound.

The Black Prince weaves the poignant true story and legacy of the last King of Punjab, Maharajah Duleep Singh, and his relationship with Queen Victoria.

The soundtrack for The Black Prince was executive produced by artist Sammy Chand’s Los Angeles based label, Rukus Avenue, along with the film’s producer Jasjeet Singh and Canada’s Raoul Juneja.

“This album tells the story of The Black Prince through a modern sound with some great artists,” said Chand. “The collection of artists on this album is a testament to how fascinating the true story and legacy of Maharaja Duleep Singh truly was. Even in its tragic form, there is so much for us to take away from his life.  For me, it’s an honor to be involved with this film.”

The album is chock full of artists like Talib Kweli, Tisha Campbell Martin, Emmanuel Jal, Nelly Furtado, AKakaAmazing, Ozomatli, Chali 2na and the film’s star Satinder Sartaaj.
