2 Years of Making Music in Local Prisons
In October 2014, we launched our Prison Project, making music with the incarcerated and the elderly at two local prisons in weekly rehearsals. Today, the work continues. Here's a recent video clip that was featured on the front page of the Huffington Post Japan. Special thanks to Kazuhiko Iimura for recording/editing the piece and for getting it published. Kazuhiko has been documenting our work in prison for the past 2 years.
