re: Rooted / The Miyumi Project

Tatsu Aoki's re:ROOTED project is the culmination of a community based project exploring Asian identity and cultural integration through the sounds of the drum, and marrying traditional and unconventional musical instruments and forms.

Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune called it "an eloquent, often dramatic merger of ancient Japanese music and experimental American jazz."

TATSU AOKI'S ROOTED: ORIGINS OF NOW is a musical chronicle of an Asian immigrant's adventures in the United States. While this four-part narrative is a personal story, it carries universal emotional force. Commissioned by the Jazz Indstitute of Chicago, it was performed during the 2001 Chicago Jazz Festival.
