Erran Baron Cohen is an award-winning composer whose work has encompassed a wide variety of projects including film and television scores, album releases, orchestral commissions, and musical theatre. Erran has received three ASCAP Composer Awards for his scores to Borat, Bruno, and The Dictator. Other projects include the symphonic work “Zere” scored for a 70 piece orchestra, which was performed in London and Kazakhstan and recorded at the legendary Abbey Road Studios. Erran composed the music for The Infidel – The Musical with book and lyrics by David Baddiel, which played at London’s Theatre Royal Stratford East in 2014. Erran has also scored numerous television documentaries, adverts, drama, idents, and theme tunes. He often composes songs for movie scores, including the final epic’ song “Dove of Peace” – performed by Elton John, Bono, Sting, Chris Martin, Snoop Dogg, and Slash.
As a songwriter and recording artist, Erran released two critically acclaimed albums with his band Zohar, and the solo album “Songs in the Key of Hanukkah”.
Sacha Baron Cohen is an Academy Award-nominated screenwriter and Golden Globe-winning actor. He is unmatched in his skills as an actor, comedian, screenwriter, and producer. He is best known for his portrayal of iconic characters Ali G, Borat Sagdiyev, Brüno Gehard, Admiral General Aladeen, and Erran Morrad. Baron Cohen has also acted in a handful of feature films including Adam McKay’s Talledega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, Tom Hooper’s Les Misérables, and Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Most recently, Baron Cohen starred in two politically driven and emotionally resonate films. Among a brilliant ensemble of actors in Aaron Sorkin’s The Trial of Chicago 7, Baron Cohen shines as real-life yippie activist Abbie Hoffman. Critics hailed his performance noting he is “savvy and soulfully aware of his urgency” and that he “brought deep resonance” with his performance as Hoffman. Similarly, Baron Cohen returned as his iconic character, “Borat,” in the global hit satire Borat Subsequent MovieFilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime For Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, which he produced and co-wrote, and was arguably the most influential and hilarious film of the year. Critics declared Baron Cohen is “a brave comic genius, a new-age Peter Sellers” and “a master”.
