Exploring_music_logo_small “OH, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet…When two strong men stand face to face, tho’ they come from the ends of the earth!“ Rudyard Kipling. Borrowing this week's title from the Rudyard Kipling poem "The Ballad of East and West,” we’ll explore the music of Asia. Traveling to Japan, China, and elsewhere, we will listen to instruments, sounds, folk tunes and poetry.
