    • I) SHOW US AN ACTIVITY YOU ENJOYDOING. TELL US HOW YOU THINK ITCONTRIBUTES TO YOUR PERSONAL ANDPROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENTSharif AbuchaibeInternational MBA
    • There are many activities I enjoydoing: Fishing Watching Soccer. Playing the Accordion
    • Fishing in Panama
    • Watching a Soccer Game in the Barranquilla Stadium
    • But the activity that I enjoy the most is Playing the Accordion
    • The Accordion The accordion is the central instrument of a popular music in Colombia called: Vallenato. The accordion is originally from Austria. Its modern form was invented by Kiril Demian. It is complemented by the caja (percussion instrument) and the guacharaca (percussion instrument) to compose the vallenato music .
    • Vallenato Very popular music in Colombia. Vallenato literally means "born in the valley” It is composed of four basic rythms: “son”, “paseo”, “merengue” and “puya”. This type of music is impregnated in the idiosyncrasy of the people of the country
    • Here is the Song I made for my Wife.Sang and Composed by me. If the music did not work, here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=8wez7nStjHw
    • It even let’s me entertain a tirelessfellow
    • Professional Development The fact of playing the accordion has given me access to many people. I have had the chance of “marketing” myself as well. Music is a universal language that transcends boundaries and bonds people even thousands of miles apart. I have known people which I have made business with by sharing the same passion of Vallenato music.
    • Personal Development I have been playing the Accordion since I was 15 years old. Since many people like Vallenato, playing the accordion can make you the center of reunions (the life of the party). Playing the Accordion gives me time to escape from reality. It gives me time to create; to give birth to something innexistent before.
    • Playing the Accordion: The art ofcreating music It gives me mental agility and coordination. It has given me the opportunity to compose songs. Finally, I would summarize this presentation with Shakespeare’s, quote: "If music be the food of life, play on".
