We have not yet booked the 2018-2019 events; Look below to see what we had last Fall.  CALS also co-sponsored Paul Alexander's presentation of Perform last March.

Fall 2017 Events:

Taikoza's East Winds Ensemble

Taikoza was formed in New York City in 1995 by Marco Lienhard.  The Japanese Taiko art form draws from Japan's rich tradition of music and performance with the taiko itself being a large barrel-like drum that can fill the air with the sounds of rolling thunder.  This ensemble uses drums up to 3 feet in diameter while also incorporating 2 types of bamboo flutes (the shakuhachi and the fue) and a 13 stringed instrument known as the Koto in its concerts.

Visit the Taikoza website.

Mana Polynesia performs an exciting array of traditional and contemporary South Pacific dances from Hawaii and other "paradise" islands of the Polynesian triangle, including Tonga, Tahiti, Fiji, and the Samoas.  Chief Koko Aiolupotea and Mana Polynesia perform Polynesian music and dance as a vehicle for cultural expression and love showcasing indigenous dances for audiences who want to learn more about the culture, history, and traditions of Hawaii and the islands of the great Pacific rim.
