Bamboo Orchestra (The Kennedy Center)

Bamboo Orchestra

The Bamboo Orchestra was founded in 1993 in Tokyo, Japan. As our name suggests, we are a group of musicians playing on a wide variety of bamboo instruments. One characteristic feature of Japanese culture is harmony in coexistence between people and nature and between people themselves. We focus on this elemental vision through our art form. The Bamboo Orchestra plays a unique palette of more than twenty bamboo instruments of Japan and Asia.
