A Workshop with Kaoru Watanabe
Kaoru Watanabe is a Brooklyn based composer and musician who specializes in both taiko and shinobue (Japanese flutes).
Miyake is a traditional Japanese taiko drumming style that has become known through works of the taiko group “Kodo”, and is formally called “Miyake-jima Kamitsuki Mikoshi Daiko”. The word ‘Miyake’ comes from Miyake-jima which is an island of the Izu Island chain and located at 180km south of Tokyo.
Kaoru’s workshop draws on his considerable experience with traditional and contemporary Japanese dance and drumming as well as his work with dancers, musicians, and martial arts experts from across the globe.
