Kaoru Watanabe: Néo Album Release

April 20

Joe's Pub


Doors at 6PM
Show at 7PM

Kaoru Watanabe, composer and Japanese shinobue flutist and taiko drummer, celebrates the release of his new album Néo. Watanabe combines the sounds of old Japan with rhythms and improvisational techniques from across the globe to create a performance that ranges from the physically dynamic to quiet introspection. He has performed with such notables as Silk Road Ensemble, So Percussion and Jason Moran and was former director of Japan's premier taiko group Kodo. 

"Watanabe has the greatest sound on the shinobue in world" —Ranjo, pre-eminent Japanese flute maker
