FRIDAY MUSIC: Béla Fleck and Banjo, by JD

That odd musical instrument the banjo conjures up images of hillbillies and rednecks playing bluegrass and country music and, thanks to TV and films, images of toothless, retarded country dwellers suspicious of city folks (the film Deliverance springs to mind.) But that shows the power of propaganda to shape our perceptions.

The banjo is every bit as sophisticated as any other stringed instrument and a lot harder to play well. Alongside John Hartford (already featured in this series) one of the best banjo players is undoubtedly Bela Fleck who takes it out of Bluegrass and produces something quite extraordinary by using it in jazz, rock, Celtic music, African music as well as classical. (He is named after Bela Bartok after all!)

In the current lineup of his group The Flecktones he has three equally gifted musicians in the Wooten brothers and Jeff Coffin. Together they have created something quite unique!éla_Fleck

Hi everyone. I will love to share a testimony with you. a few months ago, my man left me for another lady. I love him so much and all I could think of was suicide. I tried several ways, but none worked. I decided to read online and read about spells and spells. I tried it, lost a lot of money, but it was the same result. I almost gave up until I met a spell Caster that convinced me of success and I read people's comments on his website. I was skeptical when I contacted him because I lost a lot of money. With two weeks of casting a spell, my man returned home to me... Now my man is very docile and loves me more. I am now 2 months pregnant and happy to have him back in my life. I would advise you to contact this powerful spell caster, who gave me a second chance to happiness and love, I tried a few spells and none worked. If anyone can help you bring back your love and guide you in your search for life solutions, it is him. Contact him directly at -Email- ......You can also Whatsapp him on +2349083639501. Be blessed.
