If, as Walt Whitman once wrote, the poem of the earth is the voice of the rain, then surely the poem of America is the voice of the banjo. In From Senegal to Seeger, Miles creates a musical documentary channeling some of our most singular American voices such as Pete Seeger, Carl Sandburg, Woody Guthrie, Walt Whitman, Johann Sebastian Bach, Mark Twain, and excerpts from slave journals. Protest, passion, politics, poetry—From Senegal to Seeger is a provocative social and political portrait of America.
