Nenad Bach and Jamie Cohen live via webcast New York, USA - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Nov 2006

In 2006, I worked for a semester as a guest lecturer at Taylor's University College in Malaysia. My students recorded original human rights songs and performed them live for Nenad Bach, at his recording studio in Croton on Hudson, New York. Nenad then played the students a song from his new CD "Everything is Forever" and talked with the students about his experiences in creating music that raises awareness for humanitarian causes. Professor Darko Žubrinić, based at the University of Zagreb, Croatia stayed up all night to match timezones in order to speak with the students about modern Croatian history.
