World music lovers of the world,unite! This is the film you have been waiting for. Just a few short years ago,master Banjo wizard,Bela Fleck traveled to Africa,with a few Banjo's in hand,along with his half Brother,documentary film maker,Sascha Paladino (who also captured Bela in his documentary short,'Obstinato:Making Music For Two'),a film & sound crew,to study the origins of the Banjo,and where it came from (and to also record a new CD). What they (as well as us, the audience)got was not just a tutorial on the Banjo & it's origins,but the open window of opportunity to jam with several master musicians in such African nations as Uganda,Tanzania, Gambia & Mali. This is one of those rare films that not only is a genuine joy to watch (the superb camera work & razor sharp editing really bowled me over),but to listen to (we get to see & hear several African folk songs,as well as some of Fleck's own compositions by Fleck & the master musicians & singers,as well). Anybody who knows their onions about African folk & pop music will surely be over joyed by their favourites on screen. Spoken in English & French,Bambara,Jula-Fanyi & Swahili with English subtitles. Not rated by the MPAA,but contains absolutely nothing to offend even the most blue nosed prude.
