Idris Elba’s musical journey with The Bullitts [Video]

Actor and musician Idris Elba documents his journey to the renowned Big Chill Festival where he performed on stage alongside The Bullitts. Elba is of course famous for his turns as Stringer Bell in The Wire and DCI John Luther in current BBC drama Luther.

As an actor, his star has been rising rapidly for the last few years, but here Elba mentions his long-held aspirations as a musician and artist – the clip shows the build-up and aftermath of the fulfillment of one of his musical dreams. Great stuff.

SoulCulture TV also caught up with The Bullitts and Jay Electronica (with a special guest appearance from Idris & Janelle Monae) at The Big Chill festival. Watch the interview below.
