The newest little history by Elizabeth Woodfall (historian of wind) is now available at The Elizabeths. It was inspired by, in part (and is a thank-you for, in part) a recent musical performance by Abigail Washburn and Wu Fei at the Association for Asian Studies annual meeting in Seattle. You can find it by heading over to The History of Song.
To hear a song from the concert that inspired the story (here in a recording from an earlier performance) listen here.
