Bela Fleck: Throw Down Your Heart

Bela Fleck: Throw Down Your Heart


A documentary film screening of 'Bela Fleck: Throw Down Your Heart' (1hr 37mins) with live music & DJs from 5pm, the film starts at 7pm (Free Entry).

Trailer - []

"The gentle, upbeat documentary “Throw Down Your Heart” chronicles the African pilgrimage of the American banjo virtuoso Béla Fleck in search of the origins of his chosen instrument, which he sheepishly admits is “associated with a white Southern stereotype.”
At every stop on a journey that takes him from Uganda to Tanzania to Gambia and finally to Mali, Mr. Fleck plays and records with gifted local musicians. Early in the film, a Ugandan villager insists that the common perception of Africa as a continent ravaged by war and disease is “just a very small bit of what Africa is,” and “Throw Down Your Heart” sets out to prove him right." - New York Times

Before the film we have live music from 'KADI' (west african fusion, balafon, kora, donso ngoni, guitar, djembe, vocals) and DJs from 5pm, free entry.
