Otowaza: Journey Into the Beats of Japan


When: 19/01/16: 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Where: Roppongi c*LAPS, 3-16-33 Roppongi B1

Transport yourself to a world of traditional – and modern – Japanese music through Otowaza’s “Journey into the Beats of Japan” concert series. World-renowned musicians will be performing traditional Japanese music on the country’s native instruments as well as on instruments that hail from other cultures and countries.

The concert series kicked off last year with two performances by groups led by one of Otowaza’s musical directors, the multi-instrumentalist Yukihiro Isso. For the performances in January and February, Isso will be joined by percussionists, shakuhachi players, and a tabla performer, among others. Last time around, his shows were marked by their hard-driving improvisational style, so be prepared for a memorable experience.

Guests can take in the shows with bites to eat and cocktails, making for a relaxed setting where this unique music can be enjoyed to its fullest.
