Topeka to Denver


Kris and I stopped in Denver to refine Omiyage that Shoji and Kelvin started.  The piece is hard, but Denver Taiko and Mirai Daiko did a great job.  Way to hang in there!  I hope they are able to continue developing this piece.  Shoji’s original vision for this piece was for groups to take it and make it their own, not just to do it the way they were taught.  Good luck Denver Taiko and Mirai Daiko!  Next time we stop through, we hope to see improvement!

On the drive here, we listened to history being made on the radio.  It brought a tear to my eye and I’m full of hope for this new year and new era.  In honor of this historical day, we recorded this fun intro to Omiyage in honor of our new president. SurpriseOmiyage.mp3

    I like it! Perhaps someone should record a longer version of this Surprise Omiyage and send it to the White House.

    So cool! Nothing like having a President who makes you want to scream with joy. Brought a tear to my eye all over again. Finally, proud to be an American.
