Season 1 Episode 15 | Tamar-kali, The Inside Track & Name That Score


Robert and Kenny begin the show from Kraftbox Studios talking about Robert’s surprise visit from Michael Jackson on the Fox studio lot, and the weird meeting with the iconic pop star, director Terrence Malick and composer Hans Zimmer while scoring The Thin Red Line.

Then Tamar-kali comes into the studio to discuss her score for the Academy Award nominated Mudbound from Netflix, her musical upbringing, and how she met director Dee Rees.

In The Inside Track, music psychologist Dr. Siu-Lan Tan breaks down classic film examples of “closeups on faces” and they are radically changed by the presence of certain musical accompaniment.

Then Tamar discusses how she got the job for Netflix’s Come Sunday and her upcoming family drama Between Earth and Sky, the AfroPunk sound and her bang, and how her career began by doing background vocals on Outkast’s “ATLiens” album.

Lastly, Tamar-Kali joins the guys to play an “famous film songs” edition of Name That Score, where you — yes, you — could be a winner!
