Matsuri is a cross-continental musical partnership with Hub New Music, renowned shakuhachi player Kojiro Umezaki of the Silk Road Ensemble, and the composers of the Asia/America New Music Institute (AANMI). In a program featuring several new pieces commissioned for this project, Hub and Umezaki build dialogues between eastern and western musical traditions, while reflecting on concepts of musical ancestry and intercultural community.
