Hi!, I would like to let the people at KPFA know I really appreciate all the work that you have done with world music as I think it helps to let us learn more about our cultures evolution with peace and justice and I think it helps us get more of a American developing world approach to newer things we may of encountered in Israel and Palestine and I hope we let our peace work also help out the poor people Haiti as we have always been a culture that has a Latin American or Carribean flair and I hope KPFA and Pacifica keep working on world music to support newer cultural development in smaller countries like Haiti and in the Middle East that are important as aspects of our own heritage and alot of people I meet have been also appreciative of Berkeley’s local artists and culture that has its own peacework vital for education as well as local bay area civilization that we hope will be for peace and include the new world music that has a lot of new supporters who have been hoping for a way to keep going in the modern world.
