Connecting through Jazz Music

Jazz music played live for the first time ever in the rural Senegalese village of Sinthiou Mbadane. Students from Virginia Music Adventures – an internationally recognized education and performance group – are dedicated to sharing America’s unique jazz tradition with the world. To watch the villagers who have never before heard of jazz music was amazing.  Everyone was completely engaged! This makes me think about my work with technology. We can’t bring live jazz music to every school but we can bring a world of information – and music – to rural schools in Senegal and other developing nations.
