The album is produced by the show’s Grammy-nominated music supervisor and music coordinator Dean Sharenow and composer-lyricist Yazbek, with Ghostlight Records’ Kurt Deutsch serving as executive producer.

The Band's Visit arrived on Broadway October 7 following an acclaimed and sold-out world premiere at Atlantic Theater Company in 2016. Though the Off-Broadway production was a hit, no cast album was recorded.

David Cromer directs a Broadway company made up of Katrina Lenk, Tony Shalhoub, John Cariani, Ari'el Stachel, George Abud, Etai Benson, Adam Kantor, Andrew Polk, Bill Army, Rachel Prather, Jonathan Raviv, Sharone Sayegh, Kristen Sieh, and Alok Tewari.

Based on the screenplay by Eran Kolirin, The Band’s Visit follows the story of an Egyptian police band, who, after a mixup at the border, find themselves in a remote village in the middle of the Israeli desert.

Featured as musicians on the album are Andrea Grody (conductor/keys), Alexandra Eckhardt (electric & acoustic bass), Ossama Farouk (darbouka/riq), Philip Mayer (drums/Arabic percussion), Sam Sadigursky (clarinet/saxophone/flute), Jeff Theiss (associate conductor/keys 2), Harvey Valdes (oud/guitar) and Garo Yellin (cello).
