The University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Performing Arts Center welcomes On Ensemble Thursday, March 7, at 7:30 p.m.

“Established in 2002, On Ensemble is one of the most respected ensembles in the taiko world,” said PAC Manager Lee Dombroski. “Led by childhood friends Shoji Kameda and Masato (Maz) Baba, On Ensemble is recognized for infusing the powerful rhythms of taiko with a wide range of musical influences from jazz and rock to central Asian overtone singing.”

On Ensemble is supported by one of Japan’s most traditional-culture bearers, Miyamoto Unosuke Shoten, instrument maker to the emperor of Japan. This support empowers On Ensemble to utilize authentic, rare Japanese instruments in its exploration of taiko.
