Island Breeze: Kenny Endo, Riley Lee, Jeff Peterson

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
