Erica is passionate about understanding how people can connect and create community through the universal language of music. The countries in her itinerary are a mix of global music powerhouses, emerging music markets, and places with strong traditional music presence. As an avid concert and festival goer here in the US, she is curious about what concert culture looks like elsewhere, how people interact with each other, and how people organize musical events. From this experience of traveling around Africa andĀ Asia, Erica seeksĀ deeper understanding of human nature, community, as well as her own capabilities.
