What else is going on?
Back on the #classical side of things, NPR put out a cool story last week about a young pianist from Afghanistan. What makes this special is that there were only around 30-35 pianos in all of Afghanistan at the time that Elham Fanoos (young pianist) was getting his start. To further complicate things, the Taliban had banned music all together and took action on that rule. In the end, music prevailed and Elham conveyed to us that whatever excuses we have for not making music, they may need reconsidering.
If you’re trying to take #classical to the next level, the folks at Open Culture have reconstructed the sound of Ancient Greek music and they claim to be 100% accurate.
