You know how sometimes things just click?

After hearing about each other for years, I finally met the amazing Marié Abe today: fellow accordionist, professor of ethnomusicology, and all around inspiring person. I arrived with a cranky attitude about the relentless march of deadlines that was oppressing me (job market, woo!), but Marié made me excited about my ethnomusicological work, hopeful that I’ll succeed in finding a way to be a scholar but continue to play music, and reminded me why I got into this work in the first place. This woman is cool, and so I am posting a blog about it. Check this out: Debo Band.  And next, Squeezebox Stories.
