Black Panther and Kendrick Lamar's accompanying record, titled Black Panther The Album, have now been released to critical acclaim. The film itself has been lauded for being more than just a movie and its potential to change Hollywood for the better, while Kendrick's album was praised for both its musical quality and its ability to enrich the movie itself.

But another important music component for the Marvel film is undoubtedly the score, which was created by the Grammy-nominated composer Ludwig Göransson.

In the above video by Genius, Göransson explains how he crafted the scoring track “Wakanda,” named after the fictional East African nation the movie is set in, as well as how blown away he was by the script and his travels to Africa to research for the score. Watch it above.
