The shakuhachi virtuoso Kojiro Umezaki is a regular traveler with the Silk Road Ensemble.

Kojiro Umezaki

The Stone

Avenue C and Second Street, (212) 473-0043



Kojiro Umezaki is perhaps best known for playing shakuhachi, or Japanese flute, in Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble, but he is also a composer in his own right. On Monday, as a CD release event for his recent album, "(Cycles)," Mr. Umezaki performs works for shakuhachi and electronics at John Zorn's East Village venue, the Stone. His influences include, he says, a Dvořák symphony, a Walt Whitman poem and music along the Silk Road. Percussionist and fellow Silk Road Ensemble member Joseph Gramley also performs.
