Tuesday and Wednesday were pretty cool because I was able to listen to the music of Pro Musica Nipponia. My university’s their last stop for their Alberta tour, and it was really enjoyable watching them play and hear the music. I might be studying Japanese Studies, but this is the first time that I’ve heard traditional Japanese Music, first hand (aside from hearing the taiko before, of course).
It’s really amazing to know how different kinds of music can evoke different kinds of emotions and it’s even more interesting how certain emotions can be brought up by music created from different cultures. Being part of the Global Village is simply wonderful.
