Former Dead Can Dance singer Gerrard employs synthesizers, guitars, a piano, and, yes, her lovely voice for this haunting collection Whale Rider from the buzzworthy New Zealand indie flick. While the movie is torpid at times, the same can’t be said of the soundtrack, which is a soul-stirring entity all its own. Even lyric-free scene setters like ”Ancestors” and ”Suitcase,” which both clock in at less than two minutes, carry an emotional heft that most of today’s radio-ready pop ballads would be hard-pressed to match.
