Part of Music



Grammy-nominated world music artist David Krakauer and renowned pianist Kathleen Tagg traveled to a remote area of Poland together, at the invitation of the Borderlands Foundation, and created an evening-length piece about migration, interconnectedness, and global upheaval. In this unique performance, the artists play excerpts of this work and discuss their powerful, magical, and transformative experience of creating it with Krzysztof Czyżewski, one of Poland's great cultural activists and Borderlands co-director.
