Kiss Me Not (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Air-Edel Records will release the original soundtrack to Egyptian comedy documentary, ‘Kiss Me Not’ on the 6th October across all major digital platforms including Apple Music, Amazon, Spotify, Tidal, and Deezer. ‘Kiss Me Not’ is a mockumentary about the challenges faced by a young Egyptian director trying to shoot a kiss scene in a society leaning further into conservative values.

‘[‘Kiss Me Not’ is] one of the buzz films of the Dubai International Film Festival. The feature film debut from Egyptian writer-director Ahmed Amer, ‘Kiss Me Not’ (Balash Tbousny) takes a series of comedy pot-shots at increasing prudishness and self-censorship in Egyptian cinema, and delivers an engagingly frothy film about the film business.’ – Mark Adams (Screen Daily)

This score is a melange of musical styles, and I had a lot of fun composing it!  It’s equal parts Brazilian, Middle-Eastern and Big Band.  I loved the challenge of getting these seemingly disparate musical genres to co-exist together, and I couldn’t be prouder of how it turned out’.– Omar Fadel
