Announced just today at our National Cherry Blossom Festival performances, Nen Daiko will donate all profits from online store sales to Direct Relief International, who has partnered with the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) to form the Japan Relief and Recovery Fund, which ensures 100% of donations will go towards disaster relief efforts there.
Nen Daiko thanks you for your support!
Nen Daiko just completed our first performances of the 2011 National Cherry Blossom Festival! Both sets were a part of the celebration of the festival's Family Day, held at the National Building Museum. It was a fantastic time, and though it was a bit chilly and brisk outside, the energy from the crowd was exhilarating and more than helped to keep us warm. Thanks to all that came out to support us!
Congrats also to Brig, Hanae, and Namiko for their first public performance as participants in our training program! They did great!
See you all next weekend as the festival continues. Check out our calendar for scheduled performances around D.C. on Sat., Apr. 2nd!
We've just returned from performing at the Hope for Japan Earthquake Fundraiser this past Sunday in Arlington, VA. Many thanks to the Japan American Student Union (JASU) of Washington DC for organizing the event, benefiting the Japan Relief Project. Nen Daiko was honored to have participated for this great cause.
