Jazz in the City Presents: Hiroshima

Jazz in the City presents multiGrammy Award-nominated jazz band, Hiroshima, in a fundraising event for the Jackson Street Music Program on Saturday, November 10, at the Triple Door. Hiroshima, a group whose music falls between R&B, pop, world music, and jazz, has long had its own niche. The band integrates traditional Japanese instruments into their musical blend and has created a rich sound both unique and relatable; the resulting sound is a pioneering voice in the contemporary world music movement of the late 20th century. The Jackson Street Music Program is a volunteer organization that teaches youth about the business of the music industry. More information at jacksonstreetmusicprogram.org. Tickets for the event can be purchased online at thetripledoor.net. For more information about this event, visit jazzinthecity.com.
