Keith Terry and Kenny Endo: A Lifetime of Improvisation
Keith Terry and Kenny Endo: A Lifetime of Improvisation

May 28th 8:00pm $20

   "Since meeting and performing together in Tokyo over 20 years ago, we've continued our friendship and when the opportunity to perform together arises we leave it up to our intuition and experience. Please join us for this evening of spontaneous composition."

Keith Terry (www.crosspulse.com) Using any surface for it's rhythmic possibilities, Terry "claps his hands, rubs his palms, finger-pops, stamps his feet, brushes his soles, slaps his butt and belly, pops his cheek, whomps his chest, skips and slides, sings and babbles and coughs, building his music out of a surprisingly varied register of sounds and clever rhythmic variations." VILLAGE VOICE Keith Terry is a percussionist/rhythm dancer whose work encompasses a number of allied performance disciplines - music, dance, theater, performance art - which he brings together to create an artistic vision that defies easy categorization. As a self-defined "body musician," Terry uses the oldest musical instrument in the world - the human body (his own) - as the basis for exploring, blending and bending traditional and contemporary rhythmic, percussive and movement possibilities.

Kenny Endo (www.kennyendo.com) is one of the leading personas in contemporary percussion and rhythm. He is the vanguard of the taiko genre, continuing to pave new paths in this Japanese style drumming after over thirty years as a career taiko player. A performer, composer, and teacher of taiko with numerous awards and accolades, Kenny Endo is a consummate artist, blending Japanese taiko with rhythms influenced from around the world into original melodies and improvisation.

In the greater musical world, "Kenny Endo" has become synonymous with "taiko." He is arguably one of the most versatile musicians in the genre, crossing easily between the classical Japanese style and his own neo-classical, globally-inspired variety. Among his many distinctions are an M.A. in Ethnomusicology from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, an artist residency at the Lincoln Center Institute in New York, his own "Kenny Endo Day" proclaimed by the Mayor of Honolulu, and certificates of honor from the House and Senate of the State of Hawaii and Honolulu City Council.
