ALBUQUERQUE ― In MacGillivray Freeman Film’s America’s Musical Journey, chart-topping artist Aloe Blacc invites audiences to join him on a joyful, tune-filled, giant-screen tour of the nation’s most iconic music cities, diving into the special places and unique cultural diversity that gave birth to America’s celebrated musical heritage. In these cities every chord, every riff, every bang of a drum tells a story.
Reflecting the nation at every turn, these stories can be of survival or celebration, of love or heartache, of protest or coming together. America’s Musical Journey creates a soundtrack for the American experience – at its heart is the idea that music can express what it means to be American – to be part of a constant, wildly inventive cultural exchange, to be bold and outspoken, yet to seek greater harmony.
Some of the musical cities featured in the film include New Orleans, Nashville, Chicago, Memphis, Detroit, Miami, New York, and Dallas. As director Greg MacGillivray puts it, “Our film is a physical journey but it’s equally a journey of the imagination.”
