The Miyumi Project – Raw and Alive
The Miyumi Project is Tatsu Aoki s laboratory of sound, where he explores the nexus of cultures: Asian and American; Japanese and African; past and present. The compositions provide a conceptual framework for each band member to interpret. Each successive grouping of Miyumi musicians over the past two decades has contributed to the ongoing evolution of the work. Presenting a long history of collaboration between African-American and Asian-American jazz artists, the Miyumi Project will showcase the multi-generational talents of some of Chicago’s leading musicians Mwata Bowden, Edward Wilkerson, Avreeayl Ra, Jaime Kempkers, KIOTO, Coco Elysses and a special guest from Tsukasa Taiko. Tatsu Aoki and his featured ensemble offer a fusion of Avant-garde jazz interwoven with traditional taiko drumming, it is an innovative, energetic musical experience.
