Otonowa - A Benefit Concert at Piedmont Piano in Oakland

Having toured Northern Japan in aiding the relief efforts there, Otonowa (Sound Circle) will be performing jazz interpretations of Japanese folk and pop melodies, employing traditional Japanese instruments to compliment the standard jazz quartet instrumentation. It will be an evening of music, discussion of the group’s ongoing mission, light snacks and beverages, and hope that contributions can be made to make the upcoming tour as successful as the previous tours.

Featuring Masaru Koga, Ken Noriyuki Okada, Art Hirahara, and Akira Tana

Sunday, July 12, 2015 at 7:30pm
at Piedmont Piano Company
1728 San Pablo Ave. (at 18th), Oakland, CA

All the members of the group and staff support are donating their time and efforts. The costs of the tour are entirely dependent on the generous donations of music supporters who recognize the power of spiritual healing through music.

FREE ADMISSION - donations welcome
