Tsukasa Taiko at JASC: Taiko Legacy 8

Dec 17–18, 2011

“Thunderous…thriving…an adrenaline-charged departure from the customary sugar-laced holiday fare.”
— New City Stage

Co-presented with Asian Improv arts Midwest

Thunderous taiko drumming, stylized kimono dance, improvisations bridging jazz and Japanese court music—all of these combine when Tsukasa Taiko; Edward Wilkerson and Coco Elysses-Hevia of the legendary Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians; and three generations of artists from Tokyo, San Francisco, and Chicago perform in this joyous concert . Perfect for families, the performance unites ancient and contemporary music forms, and wraps the lively sounds in stunningly beautiful costumes and lighting for an unforgettable celebration of both custom and invention.

Running time: 90 minutes, no intermission
