On Ensemble is at the forefront of the growing taiko (Japanese ensemble drumming) community in the United States. Led by childhood friends Shoji Kameda and Masato Baba, On Ensemble has made a name for itself by combining the powerful rhythms and singing of traditional taiko with vibrant jazzy melodies.
The group has achieved recognition worldwide, from being the first American group to have been invited to perform at the prestigious Nihon no Taiko concert series in Japan in 2013, to their three critically acclaimed albums. Their fearless musical explorations have taken the ancient instruments of taiko into new realms and have established a distinctly modern expression for the art form.
The concert will be from 7:00-9:00PM, with doors opening at 6:30PM. Tickets are $20 for JASP members, $25 for non-members, and $10 for children and students with valid I.D. Tickets are available online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2475571, and will be sold at the door.
