Borrowing this week’s title from the Rudyard Kipling poem, “The Ballad of East and West” will explore the music of Asia. Traveling to China, Japan, and Indonesia, we will listen to instruments, sounds, folk tunes and poetry. Some that are the unique musical voices that define a country’s identity, some that are shared in common and many that are borrowed by western composers.
