- 7 PM – CONCERT: YUKIKO MATSUYAMA AND THE KOTO YUKI BAND
Back by popular demand, the Bowers is proud to host Yukiko Matsuyama performing World Pop featuring the Japanese Koto. At the age of 9, this Grammy winning musician began studying the traditional koto, the national instrument of Japan. Her move to Southern California in 1993 and exposure to L.A.’s diverse cultures and rhythms has been eloquently fused into Yukiko’s music today. Just back from Japan, her band features Hirotaka Ogawa, with whom she recorded her CD Beyond the Space. This “not to be missed” show marks the official release of the CD in the U.S.! Featured instrumentation for the concert will be koto, electric and acoustic guitar, vocals, keyboards, bass and drums.
Advance reservations required. Reservations can be made through www.bowers.org/tickets, or via e-mail at email@example.com. For additional information, please call 714.567.3677.
