THROW DOWN YOUR HEART
THROW DOWN YOUR HEART: The Banjo's African Roots

THURSDAY, APRIL 30 @ 7:30PM
IN PERSON: Director SASCHA PALADINO and
Internationally Celebrated Musician BELA FLECK

$9 Members / $12 Public / Includes Reception
Active Membership Will Be Checked

This Buena Vista Social Club of African music features virtuoso banjo player Bela Fleck's journey to Uganda, Tanzania, Gambia and Mali to jam with superb musicians in their village settings. The banjo and Bela Fleck have become almost synonymous in certain circles. But when Fleck (who has won almost every musical award that exists) undertakes a journey back to explore the origins of his chosen instrument, he's in for a very happy series of surprises. The array  of related instruments is incredible and in the charmed spirit of generosity that everyone brings to these encounters; distinctions between pupil and student are shared in the most marvellously musical ways. But read no further: www.throwdownyourheart.com gives you a better sense of what you're in for than these words can. Follow the link "The People," situate your mouse over the town, click "Musicians", and voila, the artists are revealed. They include: Oumou Sangare, Haruna Walusimbi, Anaania Ngoliga, The Jatta Family, Djelimady Tounkara, Bassekou Kouyate, and many others. What a delight to be able to travel with Bla to visit these places and to share in the joy of their music. "Superb recording of Fleck's musical encounters along with top-notch cinematography by Kirsten Johnson had the audience right in the middle of unique aural experiences as musical styles blend and new songs are made."--Indiewire.com
