Throw Down Your Heart

This morning at Midnight, we went to the Nugget Theater in Telluride to see Throw Down Your Heart - Béla Fleck Brings The Banjo Back To Africa. Béla was there to introduce the movie. It was really good, but right now they have no distribution deal, so the only places you can see it are film festivals and music festivals where Béla is playing.

"Throw Down Your Heart follows American banjo virtuoso Béla Fleck on his journey to Africa to explore the little known African roots of the banjo and record an album. Béla's boundary-breaking musical adventure takes him to Uganda, Tanzania, The Gambia, and Mali, and provides a glimpse of the beauty and complexity of Africa. Using his banjo, Béla transcends barriers of language and culture, finding common ground and forging connections with musicians from very different backgrounds."
