M. Hanna ’18 – The Faces of Music in “116 Days”

Music Around the world

In the four months I spent abroad, I had the chance to visit twenty-four cities in nine different countries. Despite the close proximity of places in Europe, no two cities were alike—each had its own unique charm. But the one thing that each place shared was a love of expressive, energetic, culturally based music. Whether it be lively performers in the Parc de la Ciutadella, an Irish band in the streets of Galway, or a Moroccan man strumming traditional melodies on the gimbri, the music breathed life into the cities, allowing travelers to witness the pride that people felt for their cultures and traditions.
