The members of Eastwinds show students how to harness their creativity by expressing and sharing their personal experiences through music. A Persian ney (flute) and daf (drum) player, a musical instrument inventor and didgeridoo virtuoso draw on their own diverse cultural and musical backgrounds to create a sound that is uniquely theirs. In this special performance, teachers and students are given the tools to create and connect to each other through making music on the spot.
