Cultural Diplomacy at its finest

"We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give."

The words said by one British bulldog Winston Churchill never seemed so apt.

Over the last 6 weeks, across South and Central Asia, Della Mae gave a lifetime's worth of love, compassion and bluegrass.

Across the 'Stans, the Dellas played, performed and taught about that uniquely American art form that is bluegrass. Along the way, they touched the lives of so many, be it at music schools, lavish performance halls or orphanages and refugee centers.

The Dellas had the longest American Musica Abroad tour, to the most countries, and they handled it with true grace and aplomb. A heartfelt welcome home to the cultural diplomatesses of Della Mae. Welcome home, Della Mae! Welcome home.
