Music Monday: Pi’s Lullaby

Oscar-winning sound-track to “Life of Pi” – 2012
For my Music Monday this week I thought that I would correspond with a post on my other site: Cannibals at Sea & the Real Richard Parker 
I love everything about the film Life of Pi directed by Ang Lee, which also won many  ®Oscars in 2012. Here follows a link to the creative opening sequence with music composed by Mychael Dann and written and sung by Bombay Jayashri. The nomination marks the first ever song in the Tamil language to be nominated in the category.

Working on the song, Ang Lee explained to Jayashri the mood and feeling the song should evoke. Jayashri notes in her blog that he told her: “A child sleeps not because he is sleepy, but because he feels safe.”
