Bela Fleck - Throw Down Your Heart (2008) - Full Movie

Here is another video/movie about the Banjo. I really enjoy how Bela Fleck goes back to Africa in this video and takes a look at the roots of the instrument. The quote below comes from about page @ Bella Fleck.Com

“Béla Fleck has taken banjo playing to some very unlikely places — not just bluegrass and country and “newgrass,” but also into classical concertos, jazz and a documentary about the banjo’s deep African roots, not to mention the time he toured with throat singers from Tuva. He’s also baffled the Grammy awards, winning for country and jazz in the same year and also winning in pop, world music, classical crossover and, yes, folk. That’s a lot of territory for five strings.”
