Son Of A Lion is an independent Australian film directed by Benjamin Gilmour, about a young Pashtun boy who wants to go to school rather than follow his father in the gun trade. The score was composed by Amanda Brown and features local Afghan musicians on several tracks. The album also includes a 16 and a 1/2 minute track from English ethno-musicologist John Baily.

The album also features two specially commissioned remixes not included in the film, one made by the film’s director under the guise of the Tiki Two, and another by local Sydney producer Tony Buchen.
