I woud suggest a dark color, since shadows will not show as much.
But I think viewers want there to be something other than a black void in the background. So how about dark blue or maroon, then use 1 or 2 small lights near the backdrop, to put splashes of light on the backdrop. It won’t be too bright, since the muslin is dark, but it will be enough to satisfy the viewer that SOMETHING is there other than a void. Then have the subjects in bright colorful clothing. 😀
