    Variety magazine describes the soundtrack as utilizing live instrumentation and ambient sound effects to create an immersive experience, showcasing Savage’s signature overtone-singing against a backdrop of diverse sonic elements ranging from Afrobeat and Afropop to amapiano, R&B, gospel, and hints of mainstream trap and pop.

    Reflecting on her creative process, Savage shares, “People expect a certain sound from me, but in doing a soundtrack, I could experiment. African culture I either put it in my fashion or put it in my music, always. It’s because it’s beautiful to be African.”

    In ‘Water & Garri,’ Savage not only takes on her first lead role in a feature movie but also serves as its Executive Producer, marking a significant milestone in her artistic journey.
