“I long, as does every human being, to be at home wherever I find myself.”  – Maya Angelou



It takes a brave person to leave their familiar home and settle in a new country.  Yet music breaks down barriers – it is a universal language that helps to ease the transition.  On this episode, we highlight women who emigrated to new countries to make their music.
