A short but great video!
"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

Good trailer! Can't wait for the movie to hit Portland, OR. If you haven't checked them it already, you might also enjoy Jayme Stone and Mansa Sissoko's "Africa to Appalachia" CD: http://cdbaby.com/cd/stonejayme2 There are several videos of them in performance on YouTube as well.
