- Program Description
"Every time an old man dies, it is as if a library burned down" says a griot of Mali, and for them it is true - much of their peoples' tradition is taught in songs from one generation to the next. Ellen Kushner speaks with Los Angeles teacher Rafe Esquith and explores the spiritual dimensions of the relation between teachers and their students, and music of teachers ranging from the Sieur de Sainte Colombe and Nadia Boulanger to the Rev. Gary Davis and Malian griots.
