From Amazon.co.uk

1 Giant Leap has created a unique music, TV and film project. Featuring an incredibly diverse collection of collaborators from Noam Chomsky to Will Young, Maxi Jazz to Tim Robbins, Billy Connolly to Michael Stipe. What About Me? is the culmination of 4 years' work by Duncan Bridgeman and Jamie Catto. They visited 50 global locations collecting wisdom and musical jewels. Then they lovingly pieced them together into the TV and film mosaic that is What About Me?. It's an inspiring and alarming look at our collective insanity: how we are ego-driven, needy in relationships, insatiable in desire, addicted to status, wounded by childhood and unable to stop thinking, but how we still manage to be inspired and creative...

While Duncan and Jamie sought out wisdom from the likes of Noam Chomsky, Eckhart Tolle and Stephen Fry and the cream of the worlds thinkers, writers, and entertainers they also met many people just getting on with their lives - gravediggers, taxi drivers, brain surgeons, street kids... Unscripted, with no storyboard, these conversations all reveal how we are connected not only through our creativity and our beliefs but most of all through our madness!

Starting with pre-composed backing tracks in a laptop studio, the music grows as each layer is added, seamlessly mixing international stars like Alanis Morissette, KD Lang and Michael Franti with Bedouin Musicians, Chinese rappers, Gabonese Pygmies, Tuvan throat singers, Egyptian folk musicians, Japanese taiko drummers, and also the royalty of today's world music scene including Baaba Maal, Lila Downs, Rokia Traore, Oumou Sangare, Zap Mama.
