Kuto was born in Uzbekistan, and he always dreamed of coming to America. He saved up every penny he could, and finally made the trip. He arrived in New York City and was instantly shocked by the sights and sounds. Everything was so different from what he was used to back home.
He walked around for hours, taking everything in. Eventually, he made his way to Central Park. There, he saw a group of people playing music and decided to join them. He sat down and began to play his drum along with the others. It felt good to be making music again.
As he played, Kuto noticed a girl walking by who seemed lost. He stopped playing and asked if she needed help finding her way around the park. The girl thanked him and they struck up a conversation.”
