Abigail Washburn could have become a lawyer. She wanted to improve the U.S.- China relations by becoming a lawyer and tackling the system by a top-down approach. Instead she became an advocate of the hearts. Who would have thought that her life would change one night at a party when she heard a song than touched her so much and left such an impression on her that she discovered the power of music and the banjo. Singing Chinese songs with a traditional American instrument is not only unique and artistic but turned out to be indeed a wonderful instrument to make music and foster cultural relations and more importantly connecting hearts.
Tunes worth spreading!
