Event description

Description

Chieko Kojima, a principal dancer and founding member of the internationally renowned Japanese drumming ensemble Kodo, will be performing a forty-five minute mini-concert followed by a meet and greet at the Toronto Buddhist Church on Saturday, March 14 at 7 pm. She will be joined by Toronto's ten ten ensemble led by Aki Takahashi (shamisen/vocals), Kiyoshi Nagata (taiko), Heidi Chan (bamboo flute) and other guests. This is a rare opportunity to see a renowned dance pioneer up-close in an intimate setting performing to live music.

Chieko Kojima is widely recognized for her innovative interpretations of Japanese folk dance. Her insatiable inquisitiveness and active international solo career continue to inform her lifework . She recently celebrated her 40th anniversary performance career with concert in Tokyo.

ten ten performs original music inspired by Japanese folk songs known as Min’yo. In the Japanese alphabet, “ten ten” refers to two dots used to change the sound of a syllable. In the same spirit, the ensemble strives to create its own unique voice for Japanese folk music breathing new life into this traditional art form.
