Cultural Crossroads - Miyumi Project Meets Great Black Music Ensemble
Garfield Park Conservatory

Prepare for a feast for both eyes and ears! Tatsu Aoki's Miyumi Project has long incorporated Great Black Music Ensemble Director Mwata Bowden into its unique amalgam of traditional Japanese music and jazz. Bowden's leadership of Great Black Music Ensemble has redefined the art of improvised composition in the context of swing. Come listen as two musical brothers unite to explore their musical and cultural connections.
All JIC JazzCity concerts are family friendly and free and start at 7PM!
