Mu Daiko at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts tonight
On Thursday, March 1, an extraordinary group is coming to the Arrowhead Center for the Arts. Cook County will enjoy Mu Daiko with special guest Hanayui on March 1 at 7 p.m.
Mu Daiko celebrates 15 years of taiko with its biggest performance yet. On its three-week Minnesota tour, the Twin Cities-based drum ensemble brings a signature blend of tradition and innovation to the ACA. Mu Daiko will share the stage with special guest artists that exemplify the unique power of women in both American and Japanese taiko.
Hanayui presents a ground-breaking combination of song, dance, and drumming as visually striking as it is musical. Joining them are Tiffany Tamaribuchi, one of the nation’s leading forces in North American taiko, and recent Minnesota transplant and Mu Daiko collaborator Megan Chao Smith. This amazing performance is appropriate for all ages, but it does include loud noises.
Tickets are only $15 adults and $10 for students. Tickets are available on-line at www.arrowheadcenterforthearts.org or at the door an hour before the show.
Proceeds from this event will go toward purchasing, maintaining or upgrading production equipment in the ACA.
The production is thanks to the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Legacy Amendment and the collaboration of the Grand Marais Playhouse, the North Shore Music Association and Community Education.
