About the performances

Enjoy the rhythmic beats of taiko drums, the melodic tones of the sanshin, a rare Okinawan musical instrument, and the enchanting plucks of the koto, a traditional Japanese zither. Experience the lively Sōran Bushi dance, a Hokkaido sea shanty and one of Japan’s most famous traditional songs, and join a chorus singing a cherry blossom song in Japanese. Be enchanted by a special duo band curated exclusively for this Kick-off night.
