Last week we took a homeschool field trip in honor of my daughter's love for Central Asian history and culture. Someday I think she'd love to be a history professor...probably in Mongolia. We were introduced to a wonderful man who has made his career's work teaching, studying and documenting the music of several groups of people living in Central Asia--an Ethnomusicologist. If you feel like an exotic trip for a few minutes go to the Smithsonian Folkways site which showcases this body of work. Watch the videos in the sidebar, and I guarantee you will be transported! The tenth cd in the set will be out this Christmas--I know what's on my daughter's list already!
We enjoyed a unique afternoon soaking in the experiences and insights from an educator who clearly is passionate about life. Thank you again Professor for inviting us into your world!
