Old tunes



My sister Shirley went over to the Khasi Hills where we grew up, to visit my brother Jim and was invited to sing in a folk festival. She hasn't been there for 33 years but tried her best to speak entirely in Khasi while she was there. Wow. I am impressed! I know I couldn't do it. Here she is giving a tv interview in the local language. My brother was born and lived there still so he had no trouble. Apparently Shirley was a big hit!
