The music of Transglobal Underground has always been a regular on British dancefloors. This film brings us another facet of the stellar 1990s band, revealing them as a multicultural group with dazzling stage presence. TGU operates as a music collective with two producers at its core – Tim Whelan and Hamid Man Tu. Each new concert and recording is an opportunity to work with musicians from different backgrounds. Fusing Indian tonalities, Arabic vocals, Eastern European chants and electro rhythms, their music is a reflection of the ethnic diversity in the London of today. The film was shot at the festival Les Escales de Saint-Nazaire 2007 (France) and in London.
