Martin Scorsese

Director Martin Scorsese winds his way from the banks of the Niger River in Mali to the cotton fields and juke joints of the Mississippi Delta to trace the origins of the blues in a lyrical combination of original performances (including Corey Harris, Willie King, Taj Mahal, Keb’ Mo’, Otha Turner, Habib Koité, Salif Keita and Ali Farka Touré) and rare archival footage. Says Scorsese: “I’ve always felt an affinity for blues music — the culture of storytelling through music is incredibly fascinating and appealing to me. The blues have great emotional resonance and are the foundation for American popular music.”
