Emma G: behind the busking

Emma G recently caught up with PhD in photography student Antonino Gugliotta to discuss life behind making music, touring, and busking.

“Emma is also a professional musician, so she often goes on tour. Whenever she goes to a city she’s never been to before, she enjoys busking as it shows her more how things are around there. Her favorite “game” to play is to smile at people and make eye contact to see how they respond. “Everyone avoids each other in this city, [...] and I just want them to have a good day.” Emma has played very important gigs, such as playing for the Prime Minister of New Zealand, playing at the Department of Defense, and performing at the Kennedy Center. “I didn’t get nervous when I played at the Kennedy Center, ‘cause I didn’t realize what the Kennedy Center was,” she told me accompanied by a laugh.”
