This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with musicians and educators Shon Klose and Svetlana Bunic. Working under the name Ba-Boom!, this two woman collaborative travels through Australia's Outback teaching African drumming and other musical styles in remote aboriginal communities. Their short term courses often culminate in a public performance, challenging the participants to overcome fear and cultivate self confidence. Their curriculm also addresses the physical well-being of the participants by teaching practical life skills like cooking, sewing, and physical fitness.
In the interview we discuss their experience working as traveling musicians, their cross disciplinary approach to education and their perspective on sustaining first world cultures.
