Banjo virtuoso Béla Fleck is the superstar of the instrument in jazz, bluegrass, classical and more. Here he journeys to explore the little known African roots of the instrument and record an album. Brought to the U.S. by West African slaves, the banjo leads him to Uganda, Tanzania, Gambia, and Mali, and results in a boundary-breaking musical adventure exploring this largely unknown piece of history.

The beauty and complexity of Africa unfold as he forges both musical and personal connections, using the banjo to transcend barriers of language and culture. A Grammy-winning trailblazer known for his musical explorations, Fleck is the perfect guide: finding common ground with musicians from very different backgrounds while creating the most meaningful music of his career. Directed by Sascha Paladino, Béla Fleck's brother. [subtitles]
