Béla Fleck takes the banjo back to Africa on this ambitious new volume in his Acoustic Planet series. Released in conjunction with the documentary film directed by Fleck's brother Sascha Paladino, Throw Down Your Heart features Fleck recorded on the road in Mali, The Gambia, Uganda, Tanzania, and Senegal. As he unearths ancient banjo (locally referred to as banza ) repertoire in rural Africa, he's joined by artists including South Africa's Vusi Mahlesela, Madagascan D'Gary, and Mali's Oumou Sangare and Afel Bocoum.
