New York wrap-up
We just finished up the New York leg of our tour and a lot has happened since my last post. We had quite a few performances in New York that culminated in a great performance at Symphony Space. We also had a number of workshops for local taiko groups. Both Tetsuro and I taught a class at Kaoru’s Taiko center and at the Long Island University workshop there was even a group of students that had come all the way from Bowling Green Ohio!
Kaoru, Tetsuro and I had a performance at Drom with our translator Nominjin who is also a great singer in her own right. Shinetsog sat in with Adam Rudolph’s Go Organic Orchestra and with another gig at a African Restaurant that Kaoru was playing in blowing people away with throat singing and Morin Huur playing. It was a great couple of day filled with music and some NY site seeing. We had to say goodbye to Tetsuro yesterday and tomorrow the rest of us head off to Seattle for our last leg of the tour. More soon!
