Kiai! An Afternoon of Japanese Music & Tea Tasting
Canadian Music Centre, 837 Davie Street
Saturday, November 7 at 2 p.m.
FREE, Register through Eventbrite
Powell Street Festival (PSFS), in partnership with Tealeaves and Vancouver Intercultural Orchestra, invites you to a special FREE afternoon of Japanese music and tea drinking at the Canadian Music Centre on Saturday, November 7 at 2 p.m.
We are thrilled to present Naomi Sato, an Amsterdam-based virtuoso of the shō (Japanese mouth organ), who will perform traditional and contemporary music on this hauntingly beautiful instrument.
After that, you'll have a very important job: sampling incredible new teas provided by Tealeaves, enjoying tasty Japanese snacks, and selecting the tea that you think best captures the spirit, tradition, solidarity, and innovation of Powell Street Festival! The tea with the most votes will become Kiai!: Powell Street Festival’s official signature tea.
The event is FREE but space is limited so please register through Eventbrite.
