You want peace in the world? you want cultural ties that bind! you have to have music! what an effort both on site and in the editing room! each snippet of their musical compilations makes the world a bit smaller, borders less defined, bridges shorter! And then too we are free to enjoy the musical gifts, joy and pleasure of each of the taped participants. I get to see all this right here in my own home space and to have my spirit lifted to a hopeful plain.
