A Kocarina is a wooden musical instrument similar to the ocarina, based on Hungarian folk instruments. Please enjoy the gentle, ensemble sound of wood. The Kocarina came to be known for the first time after being performed by a group of children at the 1998 Olympic Winter Games held in Nagano, Japan.
The leading Kocarina pioneer in Japan Kurotaro Kurosaka will bring his musical talents to grace the ears of Bostonians with his Kocarina charity concert. Admission is free and the event is being held in hopes to bring greater awareness of the tragedy and loss of all those affected by the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and ensuing tsunami and Fukushima nuclear power plant disaster. All donations will be forwarded to the families and individuals still in the recovery process.
This event is brought to you in collaboration with the Japanese Association of Greater Boston and the Consulate-General of Japan in Boston.
