The Backdrop with Kamasi Washington

BECOMING

Grammy-nominated composer Kamasi Washington takes you inside his creative choices for a special moment from Netflix's documentary film Becoming. He explains why he abandoned the rhythm-and-horns motif for orchestral strings in a sequence that centers former First Lady Michelle Obama as an exceptional individual with the power to inspire. Becoming is now Grammy-nominated for Best Score Soundtrack.
