From the celebratory sounds of King Sunny Ade's jùjú music to the politicized, sonic urgency of Fela Kuti's afrobeat, Nigerian musicians have spearheaded some of Africa's most prominent musical movements. Elder's Corner provides a unique and fascinating home-grown perspective on Nigeria's colourful history. Its narrative unfolds around the collective journeys and work of the nation’s long forgotten music heroes, highlighting their pioneering efforts, their determination to succeed and carry on in spite of overwhelming odds. This film is about the redemptive power of music to heal and transform lives
