Trivia Tuesday (ANSWER)

We Asked: Rolfe Kent’s Opening Theme for Dexter is a blend of two distinct musical styles and is composed with over eight different instruments.

Which styles and instruments does Kent use for this “Afro-Cuban beat”?

ANSWER: “Kent’s widely praised opening theme utilises an eclectic selection of European and Asian instruments, including ukulele, piano, bouzouki, trumpets, pizzicato strings, electric piano, saz, and tambour, set to an Afro-Cuban beat. Licht’s original themes are based around a mixture of Latin and electronic music, reflecting Dexter’s warm and cold elements.” [Source]
