The Silk Road Ensemble at the Granada Theatre in Santa Barbara, California, April 26, 2019.

 

In Ne-O workshops, students practice drumming technique, ensemble playing, and develop an understanding of Japanese history and culture through music making. During a Ne-O concert experience, students are immersed as the musicians offer performances on the Japanese taiko (drum), fue (bamboo flute), shamisen (banjo) and koto (zither), as well as hand-on taiko drumming opportunities for a few lucky audience members!
