Eastwinds


EXPERIMENTING WITH STORIES AND SOUND

The members of Eastwinds show students how to harness their creativity by expressing and sharing their personal experiences through music. An Estonian singer, Persian ney (flute) and daf (drum) player, a musical-instrument inventor and didgeridoo virtuoso draw on their own diverse cultural and musical backgrounds to create a sound that is uniquely theirs. In this special performance, teachers and students are given the tools to create and connect to each other through making music on the spot. 

YOSHITAKA SAEGUSA didgeridoo
KRISTIINA MAALAPS vocals, jaw harp
