On January 30th, 2011 I went to Oakland’s Chinatown to gather sounds from the Lunar New Year Bazaar. As I was recording, Mayor Jean Quan showed up and gave me a quick interview about the different Asian communities in Oakland. The day featured cultural performances in the Pacific Renaissance Plaza and booths by local vendors and companies and marked the beginning of the Year of the Rabbit.
