    Though we see the same man throughout the bumpy tour captured here -- always calm, steady, faithful -- it's bound to prove an enlightening portrait for those who know him only as the guy who once worked with Peter Gabriel. show more

    Part concert film, part narrative, it isn't fully successful on either level, coming across more like an overlong DVD extra than a fully stand-alone work. show more

    I loved this movie! I just want to go out now and buy the CD. His song "I am Africa" just stays in your head. Some say he is the Bono of Africa and I think they are right.

    Best documentary I have seen in years. An amazing story and such beautiful music accompanied by some gorgeous screen shots.
