Lisa Gerrard discusses the music for Samsara

More about Lisa: A founding member of the seminal band Dead Can Dance, Lisa contributed a piece of music to the Baraka soundtrack entitled "Host of the Seraphim." It remains one of Dead Can Dance's best loved songs.

Over the last two decades, she has composed for or contributed music to nearly 100 films. She won a Golden Globe Award for her scored contributions to the film Gladiator.  Lisa's efforts on the Baraka soundtrack represented her first work in film.

Lisa's work on Samsara proved to be a kind of homecoming. She and Mark Magidson, producer of both Baraka and Samsara, struck up a close friendship while working on the earlier film. In 1995, Mark directed and produced the Dead Can Dance concert film Toward the Within.  Michael Stearns, the musical director of Samsara, also worked with Lisa on Baraka.
