A Small World After All

   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!
