Kenny Endo 40th Year Celebration
In the greater musical world, "Kenny Endo" has become synonymous with "taiko." He is arguably one of the most versatile musicians in the genre, crossing easily between the classical Japanese style and his own neo-classical, globally-inspired variety. Among his many distinctions are an M.A. in Ethnomusicology from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, an artist residency at the Lincoln Center Institute in New York, his own "Kenny Endo Day" proclaimed by the Mayor of Honolulu, and certificates of honor from the Hawaii State House of Representatives, State Senate, and the Honolulu City Council. Endo celebrates his 40th year of taiko drumming in the 2015-2016 season with East Coast and West Coast tours combining musicians from the US and Japan. For more information, visit
