Celebrating his 45th Anniversary in taiko, Kenny Endo stands at the vanguard of the genre, and is a leading persona in contemporary percussion and rhythm in North America and Japan. Combining taiko with funk, jazz, Afro-Cuban and Hawaiian music, Endo’s Contemporary Ensemble will feature prominent artists from Japan and the U.S. for this tour, including Kiyohiko Semba, percussion master, and Kaori Takahashi, electric violin, Kaoru Watanabe, flutes, and Abe Lagrimas, vibes, drumkit, and ‘ukulele. Their performances are nuanced, brilliant, and exciting!
