Genghis Blues – This Month’s Juke Joint Movie


Check out this month’s Juke Joint Movie Night at Playhouse Boise, 8001 W Fairview, this Sunday evening June 26, at 8 pm.  Note: The 8 pm starting time this month only. The feature is Genghis Blues, a film about a blind bluesman and his trip half-way around the world to the tiny Asian country of Tuva, where he participated in an annual competition for Tuva’s favorite kind of music–Tuvan throat singing. See details at

This film was nominated for an Oscar and won many other awards. It is a delightful film of discovery, a merging of music and life styles, discovery of Tuvan culture, their incredible music, customs and way of life. Highly recommended. All ages welcome, no admission charge, fresh hot popcorn. Come see this fun and educational film.
