Bang on a Can and The Noguchi Museum present Tomas Fujiwara: Dream Up for Percussion Quartet at our a monthly series of live performances in the Museum’s garden and galleries. Free with museum admission.

Drummer and composer Tomas Fujiwara’s “Dream Up,” is a suite for percussion quartet, featuring vibraphonist Patricia Brennan, taiko drummer Kaoru Watanabe, percussionist Tim Keiper, and Fujiwara on drums.“Dream Up” draws inspiration from Tomas’ years as a performer in Stomp, and as a member of multi-percussion ensembles such as his own Triple Double, 7 Poets Trio, and Shizuko, Mike Reed’s Living By Lanterns, and the Broadway show Fela. The suite is a celebration of storytelling, history, memory, and culture through the transformative power of rhythm.
