Béla Fleck: Throw Down Your Heart

2008 NR

Inspired by a love of African music and an interest in tracing the roots of the banjo, American banjo great Béla Fleck embarks on a musical journey through Uganda, Tanzania, Gambia and Mali, playing with locals and discovering the beauty of the land. Although often associated with the American South, the banjo is actually a descendent of an African instrument, which was brought across the ocean by slaves.
