MUSIC TO READ BY. Regina Carter

Where is Ms. Carter from?  Detroit.  Say it with me: More than Motown and cars came out of Detroit!

Yacouba Kissoko plays the kora.  In case you didn't know, (I didn't) the kora is a harp-like instrument from West Africa.  You can learn more about the kora from Wikipedia.

Wil Holhouser plays the accordion.  I have always associated the accordion with polkas and Steve Urkel.
