Nagata Shachu and Toki Tatara

KAZÉ (wind) by Nagata Shachu and Toki Tatara

Nagata Shachu Japanese Taiko and Music Group and the JCCC proudly present "Kaze" featuring master bamboo flutist from Japan, Toki Tatara. Marking the first concert at Kobayashi Hall since the pandemic, Toronto's own Nagata Shachu will collaborate with Tatara in a performance that will seamlessly combine the worlds of shinobue (bamboo flute), taiko, and the three-stringed shamisen while exploring new possibilities for these traditional instruments.

Born in Kyoto, Tatara has spent her musical life in the research of bamboo flutes. She actively composes and performs many of her own works, having cultivated both Japanese traditional and Western classical techniques. In pursuit of the full potential of the shinobue which is somewhat nostalgic in the souls of the Japanese people, Tatara performs music that touches upon the hearts of this generation. Tatara has recorded several CDs and is the Director of the Japan Shinobue Association, professor at Okayama Niimi Public University, and shinobue music club instructor at the Ueno Gakuen Music University.

This concert is part of Nagata Shachu's 2021-2022 Concert Season "Saiki" sponsored by Marty Kobayashi (iA Private Wealth) and Air Canada.
