You know that cartoon with the Devil showing a new condemned soul a roomful of banjo players and saying "Welcome to Hell" ?   Well... this video is the opposite.  With the gourd and the harp-like kora,  is something of what I'd envision when St.Peter shows me to a cloud ...with you guys and he says "Welcome to Heaven".    ;D

It is a really beautiful mix of tones isn't it? Similar and yet tonally distinct. Were experimenting to see what works. Notice the early banjo tune in the second part?

But of course... Old Virginia Breakdown.   :)
