The Art of Work - Japanese Shamisen and Taiko Drums

From Saturday, November 18, 2017 1:00 pm until 3:00 pm

Music fans of all ages are invited to The Art of Work - Japanese Shamisen and Taiko Drums with Tatsu Aoki, 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 18, 2017, at the McKinley Park branch of the Chicago public library, 1915 W. 35th St., Chicago.

Tatsu Aoki is a prolific Chicago-based artist, composer, musician and educator. Born in Tokyo, he has been performing since age 4. "My grandmother taught me shamisen instrumental music," he said. "Just as I was taught from my family members, I wanted to give to kids. I became interested in the community aspect of the next generation, passing on the cultural legacy."
