White Zombie was released in 1932 and the soundtrack and the music was supervised by Abe Meyer. Meyer had an orchestra re-record many well-known (and some obscure) classical pieces for the movie

Abe Meyer supervised the music and soundtracks for many films during the 1930s and 1940s, and he also went on to supervised the music for ‘Revolt of the Zombies‘ which was released in 1936 as a loose follow-up to White Zombie.

The music used for White Zombie comprised of a mix of classical pieces, and some original pieces, most notably a musical composition called ‘Chant’ that was created by Guy Bevier Williams.

Guy Bevier Williams was a pianist and composer who worked at Universal Studios and was considered an authority on ‘ethnic music’. He provided many original musical pieces for movies throughout the 1930s and was mostly uncredited as a composer on the majority of them. His track ‘Chant’ was later sampled on ‘El Imperio Del Mal’ by Spanish experimental rock group Migala. ‘Chant’ features prominently on the introduction of their track.
