Description

NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE When a young London-born Nigerian music fan makes the shocking discovery that many Nigerian musical icons don't possess copies of their own recordings, he returns to Lagos to re-record them. This film chronicles the music—from juju to Afrobeat and everything in between—and its parallels to Nigeria’s socio-political evolution from the colonial 1950s through the nationalist movement and independence in the ’60s. Rare archival footage colors this performance-rich tour through the history of the nation’s music.

Included with the screening ticket is an exclusive pre-recorded filmmaker Q&A, immediately following the film.
