Last week in Moresby, a friend took me to a concert that is part of The Rhythm Road American Music Abroad Program, which is in sponsorship with Jazz at the Lincoln Centre and the US Department of State, Educational and Cultural Affairs. American musicians are touring the world holding concerts, master classes, workshops, jam sessions etc with local musicians to sponsor cultural exchange.
We saw the Dana Leong Band which includes Dana Leong, Baba
They played “hip-hop funk rhythms and rock propulsions” which isn’t really my cup of tea but was certainly powerful and entertaining.
Music crosses all boundaries doesn’t it and what a great initiative of the American Government – bouquets to them!!!
These are some of the photos Greg took
