Bela Fleck+Toumani Diabate


Banjo whiz Fleck recently traveled to Africa to find out where his instrument came from; filmmaker Sascha Paladino went along with him, and they made a movie about their journey, Throw Down Your Heart. Tonight Fleck will perform with Toumani Diabaté, as recognized an expert on the kora as Fleck is on the banjo, and then screen Heart.
