WHO/WHAT: RHYTHM SUMMIT, a unique collaboration made possible by the Honolulu Mayor’s Office of Culture and the Arts in 2008, brings together the artistry and musicality of world-class artists — Kenny Endo (taiko, bamboo flute, percussion), Noel Okimoto (drums, vibraphones, percussion), and special guest Dean Taba (acoustic and electric bass) for an extraordinary East-West collaboration. The music the trio creates is a blending of world rhythms and sounds weaving in and out of jazz-fusion, world music, and percussion.
