Hiromitsu Agatsuma

Kenny Endo & Hiromitsu Agatsuma | Japan Society | NY, NY | Review

One obvious advantage to living in New York City is how spoiled we are musically. Every major musical act plays shows here, small acts you might not get the chance to see elsewhere, week long residencies, combinations of musicians you won’t ever see play together again.  The sheer amount of great music any given night is staggering.

Kenny Endo & Hiromitsu Agatsuma @ Japan Society | 6/15/13

For the first time ever in the United States, revered Hawaiian taiko master Kenny Endo joins forces with Japan's trad-pop musical virtuoso Hiromitsu Agatsuma on tsugaru-shamisen (the three-stringed banjo-like instrument which originated in Northern Japan) for a one-night only live performance.
