»Tsugaru Shamisen & Taiko- Powerful New Sounds From Japan

April 19, 2015 3:00 PM

Please join Anderson Japanese Gardens, Japan America Society of Chicago and NDK America on Sunday, April 19th. Doors will open at 2:30pm. We are honored to host such amazing musicians and to offer such a unique event for Rockford! Mr. Koji Yamaguchi  and Mr. Yoshihiko Fueki will play the traditional Japanese instruments Tsugaru Shamisen and Taiko.  About Tsugaru Shamisen:                   Tsugaru-Shamisen is one of the versions of Shamisen, a three stringed Japanese Lute, specially evolved in "Tsugaru" region in the northern part of Japan. The instrument was initially used by wandering blind artists who perform in front of people's house for their living in Tsugaru. Because of the heavy snowfall and painful long winter, Tsugaru people were in need of music as an emotional relief to struggle with severe life there. Although, by the middle of the 19th century, Tsugaru-Shamisen  was used simply to provide background music to folk singers, it came to be appreciated gradually as a solo or ensemble instrument. As a solo instrument, pieces for Tsugaru-Shamisen require very high technique for speedy playing, refined sense of dynamic rhythm and creativity for improvisation, like jazz music. Tsugaru-Shamisen and its music will give audiences an impression of the strength of human as well as tenderness.  About Taiko: Wadaiko, or Taiko for short, are traditional Japanese drums. They are used to perform at festivals and other events, infusing them with energy and listeners with excitement. Today, Japanese Taiko performances with other instruments and spanning various genres, such as classic and jazz music, are thriving as the instrument finds fans across the world.  Examples of Mr. Koji Yamaguchi  and Mr. Yoshihiko Fueki stunning performances can be found on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ug6O7RD8j1Q

»Beer & Hymns Featuring Pawn Shop Kings

April 19, 2015 6:00 PM

Upbeat, versatile and original, Hymns falls firmly within the spectrum to be the face of new indie rock. The New York City-based band blends a long history of artists and genres, into their own eclectic, catchy and ever-inventive repertoire. Formed in 2005 by a pair of childhood friends, the now four-piece band has been gaining speed after their first two full-length releases and an EP that have all garnered major critical attention. Having played with and opened for artists such as Daniel Johnston and Ben Kweller, these rockers are surely finding a niche of their own in the broad new spectrum of indie tunes.
