Dear Sirs, nimen hao?
I would sincerely appreciate any leads you could give me for discovering sources of Chinese-American music of the 19th century of any kind, especially related to the Central Pacific railway construction period. I am very interested in doing musical research in this area, and am an old friend/colleague of the California pianist, Jon Jang, who you may know, and I am hoping he may be able to steer me to something as well. Hoping to hear news from you, xiexie.
