Q: “You do an awful lot of traveling, why?”
A: “Why? Because it's sort of my responsibility as an artist, as a musician, you know. I come from a very strong, rich culture, you know, with our music, and it's so wonderful for me to get to other parts of the world and perform for people, you know. Because music is very, very important, and it's the only really truly international language that we have, you know. So it's wonderful.”
