Kageyama to drum up aid
By TOMOKO OTAKE
Award-winning taiko drummer Isaku Kageyama — known for his fusion of Japanese traditional music with jazz, rock and club music — will hold a charity performance in Shinjuku Ward, Tokyo, on April 8. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Japan Red Cross Society to help victims of the March 11 Tohoku-Kanto earthquake.
"Sitting in front of the TV being sad and worrying about a nuclear meltdown will not help the situation," Kageyama wrote on his blog. " Please come out and show your support for Japan."
"Pray for Japan" Charity Taiko Performance will take place at Shinjuku Live Takanoya located in the MRC Building, 5-2-3 Shinjuku, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo. Maximum capacity is 100 people. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Admission is ¥2,600 per person, including one drink. To reserve tickets, call the venue at (03) 5919-0228.
