Duo Yumeno returns to the Hammond!
Saturday September 23rd 7:00pm
Duo Yumeno continues to inspire audiences around the world. They create a unique sound inspired by tradition but with a contemporary sensibility. Each performance showcases their profound understanding and total commitment in sharing the wonders in pairing these instruments together to create their unique sound.
Cellist Hikaru Tamaki and koto/shamisen player and singer Yoko Reikano Kimura brings their mastery and music to the Hammond Museum here in North Salem, NY. Words used to describe the duo have been "gripping", "gorgeous", "compelling" and even "unexpectedly groovy" (NYTimes ).
In 2015 they were presented the Aoyama Music Award's Baroque Saal Prize by Yasuko Tazumi, Jury President with hopes that Kimura and Tamaki's compellingly powerful soundscapes will reach audiences not only in Japan and the US but throughout the rest of the world.
New York based Duo Yumeno's repertoire includes a dynamic range of compositions, all of which explore the dialogue between classical Japanese and Western music.
Refreshments will be served.
