Tend Your Garden

Music calls and is a calling. It calls to rejoice, to resist, to praise and to devotion, to think and also to contemplate. It calls for dedication, diligence and sacrifice.

In this episode, the call goes out and is answered by musicians from Iran, Ethiopia, Cuba and Jamaica. What are they hearing? What are they compelled to do? What are they asking of the listener?
