ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Drawn from Water takes you on a journey to Ethiopia’s Omo River Valley revealing the tragic destiny of the mingi children. Mingi, a bad omen or curse which is thought to bring drought to the land, presents an epic life struggle for families of children bearing certain characteristics. This film tells the story of one courageous tribal member, and a small group of photo-journalists, who were challenged to act on behalf of the mingi children.

A score inspired by the indigenous music of Ethiopia and the colorful and traditional sounds of Africa. The score album is a sensitive, haunting and eclectic musical journey.

Award-winning, Hollywood composer Eric Hester speaks about the score, "Never before
have I been involved in a project that I felt this connected to. The story of Drawn from
Water is true. This quickly turned from a scoring gig to something that weighed heavily
on my heart."

"Before I began writing I spoke with Elias Negash who served as the Music Advisor on
the film. Elias is from Ethiopia and he provided a wealth of knowledge from regional
musical differentiations, scales, traditional arrangements and instrumentation. I also
studied native folk and indigenous music from Ethiopia, various tunings and the like. I
referenced some recordings the film crew brought back from Africa, some of which is
interpolated into the soundtrack album."

“This was an amazing experience for me and I am truly honored to have been part of
this project."
