Cultural Exchange at Work!


The Fulbright Program continues to support cultural exchange and educational activities. I thought this report from flutist Lyon Leifer was interesting and inspirational:
I've been spending the summer in India with the support of a Fulbright Senior Research Fellowship. Hindustani (north Indian classical) music and the bansuri (north Indian keyless, transverse, bamboo flute) have been a major interest of mine for a very long time. . . .

I am also working with fellow flutists in the tradition we share (founded by my guru’s guru, the late Pannalal Ghosh. There is a lot of work to be done in the area of collecting and archiving recordings and effects of the two departed masters, an effort to which I am also trying to lend support. (More)
It's reassuring to know that some projects go as well or better than planned.
