We recently had an amazing experience teaching art workshops and recording some indigenous music in the tiny island country Tuvalu. Check out a little music video that our students wrote, recorded, and filmed as part of Rise Up International’s Art Ambassador initiative. Please take a look. Our new global indigenous music project is in the works!!!
