On this Day of Remembrance, we will explore how taiko drumming became a source of transformative change to redefine identity and recognize the power of rhythm and social patterns to produce a unified, collective force to enact social change. This event will feature 94-year old Dr. Yutaka Kobyashi’s experience as an incarcerated Japanese American during WWII, Kanoko Kamata on social movements (Harvard Weatherhead Center), Karen Young of Genki Spark, and performances by Genki Spark and Odaiko New England.
A reception will follow the event.
