Abstract:

Paul Pena played blues with the greats T-Bone Walker, B.B. King, and Bonnie Raitt. Pena discovered Tuvan throatsinging on a shortwave program of Radio Moscow and in 1995, the blind bluesman became the first American to compete in a multi-harmonic throatsinging contest; he won using the kargyraa style. This film is about exploration and friendship. It is the story of a man whose struggle in life is not defined by conformity and rules but by an unquenchable curiosity, and love of music. Pena's story is truly an inspiration to all.
