In the "Connecting the Dots" season of All Around This World classes we soar above national borders as we connect countries and cultures through the music they share.

We track the global trail of some of our favorite musical genres, investigate the unexpected ubiquity of some of our favorite instruments and, as in every season of All Around This World classes, we do some of our favorite things: sing! dance! sing some more! This season takes us everywhere:

— Latin AmericaAfrica? Meet Spain. (And Portugal. And France.)–Africa’s musical influence on “the New World.”

— AfricaWork Work Work Work Work–“Work songs,” starting in Africa and going everywhere.

— South and Central AsiaManned Drone–Music class meets the drone
