Two years after the devastating 2011 earthquake and tsunami, the people of Japan continue to grieve the loss of loved ones, grapple with the enormity of rebuilding, and find comfort in the ties that bind community. Together with the Consulate General of Japan—Houston, Asia Society Texas Center proudly presents Flutes of Hope, a project created by four renowned masters of traditional Japanese flutes and stringed instruments.
Fresh from a stop at Carnegie Hall, the quartet brings a timeless message of hope and healing that speaks to the best of the human spirit. Featuring Kaoru Watanabe, fue and taiko; Akihito Obama and Ralph Samuelson, shakuhachi; and Sumie Kaneko, koto and shamisen. Presented in commemoration of the 2011 Japan Earthquake and Tsunami and in partnership with the Consulate General of Japan-Houston.
