Does music bring people together?

I say, “YES!” うん!

Today I made a new friend at “8Dri” ( a local share space for local vendors and businesses (where I also happen to teach my LivingEigo with Songs classes!) When I went to get a Bánh mì sandwich from Mr. Hayakawa, today’s vendor, I connected with Yuko, a fellow music lover and Okinawan sanshin (3 stringed banjo-like instrument) player.

She was delighted that I played the ukulele. We played together for a couple of hours, taking turns playing our instruments and singing … a fun afternoon, indeed.
