Drums of Japan, Ryu Shu Taiko Taiko Drums: An Intro to Japanese Culture Multicultural- Other,
Music,
Performing Arts- Other
Performances and workshops allow our performers to share the joy of Taiko with their audiences. “KOKORO” (heart and mind): playing with all our heart and mindful of the long history of Taiko we strive to present an authentic Taiko experience. "KI" (energy and spirit): through Taiko our “Ki” is expressed; and this energy and spirit is shared and received by our audience. “BUNKA” (culture): Taiko is used as an educational tool to teach the music, culture and history of Japan to children in schools and in the community; and to imbue a strong appreciation for cultural tradition and the arts. In our presentation-“The Drums of Noto Hanto”- the audience becomes part of the performance enacting the roles of peasants who drum and dance as demons to scare away invading Samurai. We perform both traditional works and contemporary ones; combining Taiko drumming with Japanese Folk Dance for an exciting presentation that will entertain, enthrall and enrich all that experience the power of the Taiko Drums of Japan!

Spero, Christine Spero Plays Nyro Music
Laura Nyro was the quintessential singer/songwriter/pianist. Her groundbreaking music crossed the genres of folk, rock and jazz and she was one of the most covered artists in the 1960's and 1970's (Eli's Coming, Stoned Soul Picnic, Wedding Bell Blues, Sweet Blindness). Her tragically premature passing in 1997 shocked her fans. Finally, in 2012 she was inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame. The Christine Spero Group will bring their own kind of power to Laura Nyro's music. Christine Spero has loved Laura's music from a young age when she was given Eli and the Thirteenth Confession by a radio DJ friend. She was inspired by Laura's music to be bold in writing, singing and playing piano and was the Winner of the 2004 USA Songwriting Competition in the Jazz Category. Her CDs are listened to around the world. Joining Christine will be Elliot Spero on horns and percussion, Scott Petito on bass, and Peter O'Brien on drums. The group will also be performing some of Christine's original compositions. Christine will share stories about some of Laura's songs as well as her own.
