This page is a tribute to the late Rex de Silva, one of the most inspirational international journalists of our era.  His sister, Arlene de Silva, is the founder of the Cincinnati Music & Wellness Coalition -  the most successful coalition for recreational music making in our nation.  She introduced YMWI's work to her brother several years ago.  

This was one of the last unpublished articles of the veteran editor Rex de Silva who passed away on November 16. When he began journalism in the 1960s Rex began with pop music. Later he evolved into the higher dimensions of music therapy, especially for those who are lonely and the elderly.
