It all started on a chilly evening in late April of 1993. I was in Slovenia as a participant in the musicological conference Slovenian Music Days, hosted by Professor Primož Kuret of the Music Academy in Ljubljana. I had just presented the findings from a Norwegian research project named The Resonant Community indicating that inclusion and sharing of the cultural heritage of immigrants in the school curriculum for music and dance would lead to a considerable improvement of the social climate of participating schools with a significant reduction in ethnically related conflicts, when something happened that proved to open a new chapter in my life.
