Accordion, Memory, Maine, Franco-American, Music
In this short audio story, Leonel Ducas describes his immigration to the United States from Canada and how music has been a significant part of his life, both socially and personally. Throughout the story, we gain a better idea of how Ducas learned accordion, his family history, and how he uses music as a means of remembering. This project focuses on French music for a course on Franco-American identity in Maine.
