Documentary on African music at the AMP

Last night I went to the AMP to see the documentary "Throw Down Your Heart," which follows banjo virtuoso Béla Fleck on his musical travels through Africa. He plays with artists in Uganda, Tanzania, Gambia, and Mali, where he was hosted by the incredible singer Oumou Sangare. The music is wonderful, but it's just as fun to watch the way Fleck is greeted as he visits a wide range of musical locales. The film is only scheduled to run through Thursday.

UPDATE - the film has been extended for another week
