Enjoy a lively performance of traditional and contemporary Japanese drum, song and Eisa dance inspired by our common humanity and struggles towards peace and respect for human rights.
Based in Osaka, Japan, award-winning Karakoro will feature 68 performers led by director Yoko Matsui. Since 2011, the troupe has been performing traditional and creative Eisa dance in Canada every year to sellout audiences.
The finale for this performance will be a tribute to South Africa featuring Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika, a song that has been called the anthem of the movement that defeated racial segregation in South Africa and freed its leader, Nelson Mandela.
The Museum is proud to present this event in partnership with the Japanese Cultural Association of Manitoba.
