Sunday, 5:00pm – 5:30pm, Diamond Stage

Onibana is a type of ower that grows in Japanese grave sites. Through taiko, Onibana seek to similarly transform the ele- ments of shadow into beauty. Eileen Kage, Noriko Kobayashi, and Leslie Komori have over 80 years of combined playing experience. They are proud to announce that they are all in their 50s and look forward to many more years of music. They are settlers of Japanese descent and acknowledge that they live on the unceded lands of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. They are grateful to play and thrive on these lands. This year they are making Powell Street Festival history by being the first performing group composed entirely of former Powell Street Festival coordinators.

日曜、午後5時 半〜5時半、ダイヤモンド・ステージ

鬼花は、日本の墓所に育つ花の一つです。私たちは、太鼓を通じ て世の中の陰の部分を美しいものに転じることを目指していま す。奏者のEileen Kage、Noriko Kobayashi、Leslie Komoriは、3 人合わせて80年を越える太鼓経験を持っています。50代であるこ とに誇りを持ち、これから何年も音楽を続けていきたいと思ってい ます。私たちは日本人を祖先に持ちますが、現在マスクエム、スク オミッシュ、スレイワトゥースのファースト・ネーションの土地に住 ませていただき、生き生きと演奏ができることに心から感謝してい ます。また、3人はかつてパウエル祭のコーディネーターを務めた 経験があり、このメンバーで戻ってくることはパウエル祭にとって も歴史的な意味があります。
