I had a great time sharing music experiences at the Anoka County Library, especially seeing children getting excited about instruments from my home country. This is the best reward any musician can have–sharing with young musicians is far better than having a big stage or playing for a large audience. I am grateful for this special Saturday we were able to share together.
I am working on a project to help people build two octave “chromatic kalimbas” at maker spaces like Leonardo’s Basement. I see this as a cultural bridge activity but I also understand that I might be doing the “appropriation thing”. Would you be interested in seeing/hearing/playing what I am working on sometime and discuss?
Hello Edward, sorry for the delay in getting back to you here. I am familiar with Leonardo’s Basement and love the mission of the organization. I would love to talk with you more about what you are working on, please send me a note through the contact form and include your email address so we can connect directly. I look forward to hearing from you!
