“Very airy, very dark with a glimmer of hope”, is how Helen Parker-Jayne describes the yet to be named film.
The Venus Bushfires is set to compose a sound track for a new Swedish film.
Helen Parker-Jayne, who is the head of the collective music group revealed this to Pulse Nigeria in an exclusive interview.
“Very airy, very dark with a glimmer of hope”, is how she described the yet to be named film.
“It’s about a little girl growing up in an enchanted forest, she’s finding her way and she is meeting beautiful creatures”, Parker-Jayne shared.
The Nigerian singer said the film was a folk story that people of different ethnic groups and races would be able to relate with.
“I want to be involved in things that speak to the human heart and just proves that I can be doing African music or my style of Nigerian music in a Swedish film and it’s still telling the same story and we’re still understanding it speaking different languages” she said.
The performing artist’s music has been described as "neo afro folk". Some have called it hypnotic because of the soothing tunes she plays on her hang.
Parker-Jayne also addresses the issues of musical scores in Nollywood films during her interview with Pulse Nigeria.
She highlights that there are copyright issues when people use a song by an international artist without taking permission.
“People are afraid it will cost too much money to invest music in the film, but music helps to tell the story better", she explained.
