The story is simple enough: a mischievous boy named Tunde grounds himself in the study of music. He works around distractions, past laziness, and through frustration, doubt, and jealousy to become an accomplished trumpeter who makes his (hitherto exasperated) parents proud.

In this version of the story, however, distractions, laziness, frustration, doubt and jealousy are actual characters as real as Tunde. Oh, and every character is a larger-than-life-sized puppet. And of course there’s music. Lots and lots of music. Which is how this simple story becomes an epic tale. A children’s book on steroids set to music that adults will want to shake their booties to. Like if Fela Kuti lived on Sesame Street.
