This episode features the banjo and it’s many sounds. I love this idea that the banjo was a sacred instrument and that music was a way to conjure and contain spirits. I also love that the banjo, an instrument that has become a symbol of bluegrass and country music, had its origins in the Afro Caribbean tradition.
