played the tambourine (and man could he play it!)

I'm very excited that I have made contact with an El Sistema-inspired program here in Rio called Ação Social pela Música (Social Action through Music) and I am hoping to be able to visit two of their nucleos (music centers) this week! I've spent a bit of time this week creating release forms for taking pictures, videos, and recordings and creating a list of interview questions. Hopefully I will have some interesting things to share on the blog next week after I visit!
