The MIYUMI Project at Fred Anderson Park: JULY
The MIYUMI Project is one of the longest-standing amalgams drawing from the aesthetics of Japanese traditional music and Chicago’s avant-garde jazz and experimental music. The presentations are improvised compositions that stem from a conceptual framework for each band member to interpret, which is then transformed into a contemporary musical immersion for the audience. Each successive grouping of MIYUMI Project musicians over the past two decades has contributed to the unique blending of modern application with a traditional sensibility. The final result is a continuous evolution of a “live and raw” musical happening.
This special 2021 summer performance of Tatsu Aoki’s MIYUMI Project will include: Coco Elysses, Rami Atassi, and Tsukasa Taiko National Gintenkai Unit members Kioto Aoki, Kiyomi Negi, and Kembre Daniel.
