"Penetrating the familiar is by no means a given.  On the contrary, it is hard, hard work."

We're talking about we get there today at Penn.  Among other things, we're listening to Ladysmith Black Mambazo to learn what isicathamiya can teach us about our own weather, and about the way we perceive it.

This sounds super fun. Ladysmith Black Mambazo makes me want to sing! Okay, maybe I already am. You can't hear me.

Ah! They are one of the voices of childhood road trips.

Oh, what fun! Do you have a playlist? I'd love to sing along... :)

This is a new word to me, even though I've seen them perform. And what did you learn
