Kristen Leigh in Southeast Asia

May 9, 2013


I am thrilled to announce that I've been awarded a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation to spend this summer in Jogjakarta, Indonesia, to study music, religion, and culture at Gadja Mada University.  I will be living in a guest house in Jogja from late May through the end of July before traveling to Bali and then Thailand for some comparative research.  


I do hope to perform some while I am there, but my primary goal is to learn as much as I possibly can from the wonderful people that I will meet about the music that they love, and what it means to them.  


If you would like to keep up with me while I traverse the globe, please check in periodically with my travel blog at
