The Wang Center celebrates 35 years of drumming by legendary drummer Kenny Endo in Gateway: Ma vs. Groove on Saturday, November 13, at 8:00 pm in the Theater. Distinguished in Japan and the Western world, Endo blends taiko with rhythms influenced from his jazz background and collaborations around the world into original melodies and improvisation.
For this performance, the consummate artist, along with four master musicians, juxtapose the Japanese concept of “ma” (room, interval) with the Western musical concept of groove (co-sponsored by the Japan Center at Stony Brook).
Tickets: $35 VIP (reserved priority seating); $20 general; $15 seniors; and $10 students (20 percent discount to groups of five or more).
