Abstract

Music is a universal language. Through music, audiences experience an aesthetic expression of culture that needs no translation to understand. A team of CWU faculty and students documented the cultural exchange between Yakima, Washington, and Morelia, Mexico, as part of a Sister City relationship with music building the bridge between cultures. This session will focus on the process and outcomes from this cultural exchange, the role of music, and present a teaser of the documentary on the subject. Cap-stoning the session will be the performance of an original piece of music composed for the Yakima Valley Community College Salsa Band's cultural exchange experience.
