Remembering Hiroshima and Nagasaki - Art and music at Blue Whale in Little Tokyo

August 6th, 2019 (Exhibition continuing through September 30)

This artistic and musical event occurred on August 6th, the anniversary of the 1945 atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan. The night was aimed at spreading love, reducing suffering, and promoting healing. The event featured notable musicians, including acclaimed pianist Motoko Honda, award-winning multi-woodwind player Vinny Golia, frequent Hans Zimmer collaborator drummer/percussionist Satnam Ramgotra, and Matt Piper on bass and banjo. The large 7 ft x 7 ft piece Hiroshima Black Rain and 8 ft x 20 ft Buddha were shown publicly for the first time at this event for one night only, along with a short film. An extensive collection of Harazaki's work will be on exhibit in the Blue Whale through the end of September.
