play5“Benefit concert for what?” you might ask …to raise global awareness of the serious implications of the current climate crisis (most namely global warming) and encourage world-wide action to save our planet. (See www.350.org) College professor, ethnomusicologist, and world musician Warren Senders (see blog) came up with the wonderful idea to produce a world music and dance show in order to aid this all important cause. As an avid fan of world music, it always gives me great pleasure to see my passion employed as a platform to encourage global unity and well-being!
