Grand People's Study House
Pyongyang, North Korea
Susan And The KimsI recently visited the Grand People's Study House in Pyongyang, North Korea for the second time. Having been there before, I knew this room with the boom boxes existed. I brought my friend Susan Greenbaum's new CD in hopes of leaving it there for people enjoy and learn a little more about the United States. To my great surprise, not only did they accept it into their permanent collection, but actually played a part of the title song while we were there (video on YouTube). Our guide asked me to bring Susan back with her guitar. I believe it will only be through more personal contact that the situation between the United States and North Korea will improve. My hope is that one day Susan will get the opportunity to play in Pyongyang and spread some musical diplomacy.
