If music is a universal language, love is truly its twin. Both as electric and bewildering as they are cold and complex. Both pulsing through the veins of all humanity, traversing the boundaries of age and color, of gender and station in life.
The quests for true love and true music are intimately woven into every voice. And so, each one's love is filled with music. And every inch of the world's truest music is steeped in love.
We'll explore the world's great love songs - from enchanting lullabies to scintillating tangos, from Motown to the Middle East, songs of love lost and love newly-found.
