I’ll be playing shakuhachi at his one on April 5, 6pm.: http://aaartsalliance.org/events/special-japan-benefit-town The Asian American Arts Alliance (a4) community gathers together to help support relief efforts in Japan. We’ll have special artistic performances from the Japanese and the Asia Pacific region as well as a meditation Qigong practice dedicated to all those who have been affected by the earthquake and tsunami. During such challenging times, healing and remembering through the arts is a way we can engage in significant and meaningful issues as citizens of the world. A representative from the Japan Society will be on hand to share updates about their Relief Fund and how their efforts are helping people directly on the ground. You’ll have an opportunity to ask questions as well as make a contribution if you wish.
