January 27 – UBC Museum of Anthropology
a concert of music and text featuring Eien Hunter-Ishikawa (taiko), Colleen Lanki (voice), and Alcvin Ryuzen Ramos (shakuhachi)
In conjunction with the UBC Museum of Anthropology’s stunning photographic exhibition ひろしまhiroshima by Ishiuchi Miyako, TomoeArts and the MOA present The Voices of Hiroshima, a concert performance reflecting on the events of August 6, 1945 and the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.
The Voices of Hiroshima combines traditional Japanese music from the Hiroshima region with new compositions by Eien Hunter-Ishikawa and Alcvin Ryuzen Ramos, featuring taiko, yokobue and shakuhachi. Woven through the music are texts from the personal and public accounts of those involved with the creation and dropping of the world’s first atomic bomb: segments of US President Truman’s diaries and speeches, reflections of the scientists that created “the gadget,” fragments of the transcripts from the flight of Enola Gay as the crew released “Little Boy,” and accounts from Hiroshima the moment the bomb reached its destination.
