The World of Tunde Jegede

Dir: Sunara Begum / 2010 / UK / 70 mins / Music Documentary Film

Tunde Jegede, a renaissance man and one of the most important artists of the 21st century, has worked with some of the world’s finest singers, musicians, dancers and visual artists including Oumou Sangare, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Evelyn Glennie, Toumani Diabate, Courtney Pine and Trilok Gurtu.

The World of Tunde Jegede documents his full story for the first time, from childhood prodigy performer to social commentator and political activist in his early teens, to the birth of a contemporary classical composer and international artist with a conscience and message. The film looks at his position between worlds and draws us deeper into each of them.
