Buffalo Silver Band and JGB Shibuki Taiko Ensemble: East Meets West
Originally broadcast at 2:30 p.m. ET Sunday, July 3, 2022.
This program is made possible by the John Alfred and Oscar Johnson Memorial Trust
The Buffalo Silver Band, the 105-year-old British-style brass band of Western New York, joins the JGB Shibuki Japanese Taiko ensemble for a program of East Meets West. A rising star of the Japanese Group Buffalo, the Shibuki Taiko Ensemble has been performing together on traditional Japanese percussion instruments since 2016. Both descended from long performance traditions, the two ensembles share a love of music-making and have found a way to synergize their different heritages, creating a vibrant musical experience together.
