Kenny Endo Taiko with Hiromitsu Agatsuma Shamisen

Wednesday, June 5, 2013

For the first time ever, revered Hawaiian taiko master Kenny Endo joins forces with Japan’s trad-pop musical virtuoso Hiromitsu Agatsuma on tsugaru-shamisen (a three-stringed banjo-like instrument which originated in Northern Japan). Endo’s adrenaline-pumping performance vibes with Agatsuma’s fast, aggressive percussive sound, as they together, push the limits of one another’s instruments. Known internationally for border-crossing fusions and appealing contemporary expressions, these two musicians deliver a dazzling and unforgettable evening in their much-anticipated return to the Japan Society stage!
