The Shamisen Sessions, Vol. 1: Hiromitsu Agatsuma + Akiko Yano

Saturday, September 27, 2014
7:30 – 10PM

Tsugaru-shamisen rock, pop and jazz virtuoso Hiromitsu Agatsuma and musical luminary pianist/singer-songwriter Akiko Yano perform together for the first time ever. United by their inimitable ability to transform the sentimental strains of Japan’s beloved folk songs (min'yo) into cool jazz/pop tunes, Agatsuma and Yano use 3 strings, 88 keys and endearing vocals to breathe new life into this musical genre. Sure to deliver sparks, explosions and surprises, this one-of-a-kind collaboration is not to be missed!
