Copy of Goshu Ondo Suite with Choral Chameleon

  • 551 Grand Street New York, NY, 10002 United States (map)

In this very special World PremiereEast and West collide in this evening-length fusion of New York jazz and Japanese traditional culture, by composer and jazz pianist, Eri Yamamoto.

Choral Chameleon's 50+ voice Chorus will sing while performing an obon dance in a circular formation, propelled by Yamamoto's jazz trio.
In the spirit of the obon, usually danced by an entire community in a public place, the entire audience will be taught the dance and will be invited to join the circle.
