Music from the Mountains

Hannah Schneider launched Music from the Mountains—a humanitarian project to help struggling musicians in the mountainous North Caucasus, Russia—to show that music still unites us all, even across languages, cultures, and politics. Hannah has traveled to the North Caucasus, a region fraught with poverty and religious and ethnic strife, to scout and record an album of young musicians to help them develop their talent and become involved in Musical Exchange.
