Sound Travels Wednesday: Far Eastern

Click to enlarge

Today's set was inspired by the Milwaukee appearance of a truly world-class production company, Shen Yun, and their upcoming appearance at The Milwaukee Theater this Friday and Saturday. I was lucky enough to have a guest from the group that helped bring this unique group to Milwaukee, Lisa Simm from The Milwaukee Falun Dafa Organization, a fellow non-prof whose event is perfect for a Sound Travels trip. What a trip, music from all over the far east. If you missed it here it is again...
