The video series Beats of the Heart examines the music scene from the hills of Appalachia to the core of Latin America. No. 17 Cotton Mill Shangahi Blues: Music in China documents a dormant, ancient musical culture that re-emerged following China's Cultural Revolution. Director Jeremy Marre journeyed to China in the 1980s to record the music traditions then surfacing. Marre's musical quest took him to Shanghai, Beijing, and to the Islamic, far northwestern region of Xinjian, where he filmed performances by modern Chinese musicians. The video also chronicles ancient instruments from the region. Other titles in this extensive documentary series include Sukiyaki and Chips, Shotguns and Accordions, and Konkombe: The Nigerian Pop Music. ~ Sally Barber, Rovi
