And We’re Off!
The Earth StringBand is intact and ready to go! Our faithful guide, Monak, missed her airplane to Boston this morning due to the rain but we’ll be meeting her in Minneapolis before our flight to Tokyo. We’re all looking forward to the 15 hours of flying! Dang Dang!
Almost time to go!
Today marks the first day of consuming Malaria medicine. This is a sure sign that in under 48 hours, The Earth StringBand will officially be off for Southeast Asia!
We’re almost 100% ready with all our equipment and generally having our things come together. We cannot wait to land on the other side of the world and spread the good stringband word!
Welcome to the Southeast Asia tour Blog!!!
This is Andy Reiner from The Earth Stringband! We’re all beyond excited to travel to Southeast Asia on The Rhythm Road produced by The State Department and Jazz at Lincoln Center. If you are reading this, you are in the same place that each member of the band will be posting text, videos, and pictures of the people we meet and the places we go. We’ll be travelling to Laos, Thailand, Burma (Myanmar), East Timor, and South Korea. We hope you will follow our travels as well as download our free album (though please feel free to donate!) We’re leaving on September 8th and returning on October 11th so expect this site to be updated with new posts every chance we get! Thank you and come back soon for updates!
