Happy New Year from Jinja

by

Ruth Akello, her band, and Bela Fleck, in Jinja, Uganda.  (Excerpt from the
documentary “Throw Down Your Heart.”)

Hope this helps you start the year with a smile.

“When I started to play with them, I used to fear. But now I don’t fear again.  I’m free.”

More here,  filmed in the same village as the clip above.
