The GRAMMY Museum Q&A starts at 8pm on October 10th, and the performance of their album Electric Island, Acoustic Sea is set to start at 7pm at Aratani Theater October 14th. Ho explains, The Electric Island, Acoustic Sea features an original collection of contemporary compositions rooted in the artists’ native cultures, “Our album is a musical convergence of our island cultures of Japan and Hawaii. We used traditional instruments like ‘ukulele, slack key guitar, ipu heke, taiko, sanshin, koto (June Kuramoto from the group Hiroshima recorded the koto parts) in our original music.”
