CJS Ann Arbor Japan Week | Festival Music of Japan

Friday, June 17, 2022
7:00-7:30 PM
1st floor lobby, 343 S. Fifth Off Campus Location
Join us for a Japanese festival with Sakura Japanese Instrumental Group. Our performing artists, hailing from hometowns in both Japan and the Midwest USA, come together to share the soundscapes of traditional music as expressed through the compositions of our mutual mentor Yamada Mizue from Kanazawa, Japan as well as traditional folk music pieces. We will begin our journey with an EXPLOSION of sound on the Japanese drums known as Taiko, then enjoy the melodies of other festival music and our Dancing Lion, the Shishimai, as we celebrate the art of traditional Japanese music together.
