Music of Remembrance (MOR) & Nisei Veterans Committee (NVC)

Music has so much power to impact our lives. Sometimes it is through memories, and sometimes it has a message to the future. Introducing a recently passed Japanese musician, Ryuichi Sakamoto, we will bring Mina Miller from Music of Remembrance (MOR), and Allen Nakamoto from Nisei Veterans Committee (NVC). We introduce the work and mission of MOR and NVC to keep their stories. Yuki Hashimori will join us with her violin performance of Akatonbo.

We are a local Okinawan taiko group dedicated to teaching the younger generation our culture. Our group is made up of approximately 30 active multi-generational performers from Olympia, Yelm, Tacoma, Seattle, Port Orchard, and Oak harbor areas. Members' ages range from toddlers to older adults. Each of our members has their own unique background; some from Okinawa and others local to Washington state. ​We fuse traditional Okinawa music with traditional Okinawa dance routines, chanting, and drumming. Our performances include other traditional Okinawan instruments such as the Sanshin and Koto.

The School of TAIKO was founded in 2009 by professional Japanese Taiko Drummer Ringtaro Tateishi who was former member of ONDEKOZA, and co-founder Asako Tateishi who is event coordinator and was former official race announcer of the Suzuka Circuit, Japan. Both of them had performed at EPCOT Center of Walt Disney World, FL. At the School of TAIKO, you can enjoy the Taiko drumming at the level which suits your dreams, from beginners to semi-professionals, with a program that allows you to step up comfortably.

Seattle Kokon Taiko (SKT) is Washington’s first performing taiko ensemble. Taiko is a dynamic synthesis of rhythm, movement and spirit originating in Japan and evolving as a folk art over the last several hundred years. In Seattle Kokon Taiko, we try to combine the ancient with the modern; our repertoire is a mix of traditional pieces and contemporary compositions. SKT is based in the local Japanese American community and has performed at schools, arts festivals, street fairs, community programs, corporate events and in concert throughout Washington and Oregon. Through taiko, we hope to contribute to the development of a uniquely Japanese American art form –Japanese in origin, American in expression– that weaves threads of continuity between generations and builds bridges of understanding among people of all nationalities and walks of life.

In 1973, Sensei André Dulce (8th Degree Black Belt) founded the Washington Shotokan Association in Bellevue, Washington after having trained under Kancho Kenneth Funakoshi in Honolulu, Hawaii. Dulce Sensei's friendly teaching style and his love for serving families and the Eastside community led to WSA becoming one of the largest and most successful martial arts schools in the country. What makes Washington Shotokan Association so special is our amazing students and teaching staff. 100 percent of our instructors volunteer their time to teach and "give back" by helping our students achieve their health and martial arts goals. Over our 45 years of serving Bellevue and the Eastside community, we have touched the lives of thousands of students and their families, and have promoted over 100 students to the ranks of Black Belt, including our most senior instructors. Washington Shotokan Association is led by an experienced team of twelve senior instructors (4th degree Black Belts and above), who represent over four centuries of Shotokan Karate Experience. In addition, WSA is affiliated with the worldwide Funakoshi Shotokan Karate Association led by Founder Shihan Kyle Funakoshi, son of founder Kancho Kenneth Funakoshi. Many of our students have made WSA their second family and have incorporated the WSA experience into their daily lives and are amazing people.
