Transglobal Underground

A film by Guillaume Dero


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 their ethnic diversity and integration into the London of today. The film was shot at the Escales de Saint-Nazaire 2007 festival and in London.

The Punkt Festival in Kristiansand (Norway) is based on a live remix experience. Every concert is immediately followed by its remixed performance by other guest musicians. Indeed, the music first heard in its live original form resurfaces consequently anew, with improvisation and surprise.
