  • The discography of banjo maestro Bela Fleck is full of eclectic music that ranges from traditional bluegrass to forward-thinking jazz to world fusion. THROW DOWN YOUR HEART is the third volume in Fleck's TALES FROM THE ACOUSTIC PLANET series, one that documents his travels in Africa. Fleck recorded in Mali, Senegal, Gambia, and Uganda, among other countries, drawing on the musical traditions of those countries and adding his own restlessly inventive imagination. Among his 40 guests are Baba Maal, Toumani Diabate, and Oumou Sangare, along with numerous outstanding musicians not known outside their native countries. The results don't have much in common with Fleck's wackier hybrid forms; instead the music is sincere, straightforward, and very beautiful. Fleck also made a film of his sojourn, for which THROW DOWN YOUR HEART serves as the soundtrack.
