Through its stunning location footage, enthusiastic jam sessions, and hauntingly beautiful music, director Sascha Paladino’s multi-award-winning Throw Down Your Heart captured a collection of the world’s greatest musicians demonstrating how music transcends languages, cultures and continents. This is the first time it will be available as a complete set. Its release is timed to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of Rounder Records.
