"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.

Wow, this is wonderful. Haven't seen the film, but look forward to it. It is true that music is a powerful communication tool that allows us to make connections, plant the seeds of community and soften the barriers of culture... this is the basis of FODfest - Friend of Daniel Pearl. We invite Bela Fleck to join us this year.
