June 22, 2011

Dear friends,
Professor J. H. Kwabena Nketia turned 90 years young today. Please join me in wishing him a Happy Birthday. A few days ago on the phone from Ghana while discussing some of his works, I couldn't help but be so profoundly grateful that for decades we've had the wisdom of this sage within our ears and minds. Over here in St Louis at the magnificent Powell Symphony Hall, we had a two-day celebration, of sort, with a historical 'event', the full announcement of which will be shared much later. Happy birthday, Prof. Nketia!
