The Balance Between Skill and Flow
Wah has been creating, recording, touring and teaching for many years and she brings her perspective borne of those experiences to this interview. She talks about the power of music to touch people, and about the essential feature of music being the way it conveys feeling and emotion, musician to listener.
“music is a medicine, it just communicates a certain feeling… for me, improvisation is accessing the feeling of that particular song and then going deeper within that feeling and that’s how you know what to play rather than which notes and what key are we in and which chord are we going to, it’s like how can I go deeper into that feeling and express that feeling, how can we flesh that out?”
