Slack Key Guitar Meets Taiko and Shakuhachi
- "blindingly brilliant ensemble"
Kenny Endo, on taiko, has joined with shakuhachi (bamboo flute) master Riley Lee and award-winning slack key guitarist Jeff Peterson —to create a unique blend that draws from taiko, Japanese tradition, and Hawaiian influences for a sound that is a complex and engaging fusion of Pacific sensibilities.
“It was a wonderful program. There was a nice balance of interaction, improvisation, and blindingly brilliant ensemble.” –ethnomusicologist at the Honolulu premiere
