TEN TEN Will Join our 2018 New Year Concert

TEN TEN is a Japanese music ensemble led by Aki Takahashi on vocals and shamisen (three-stringed lute). Together with Kiyoshi Nagata and Heidi Chan on taiko (drums), shinobue (folk flute) and shakuhachi (end-blown flute), the trio performs original music inspired by Japanese folk songs known as Min’yo. TEN TEN refers to two dots used to change the sound of a syllable. In the same spirit, the ensemble strives to create its own unique voice for Japanese folk music breathing new life into this traditional art form.
