Senses, Perception, Reality? Media Opera...Tokyo...November 17-18

In our daily lives we experience what can feel sometimes like an audio and visual assault.
On November 17 and 18, a group of artists will present Media Opera at Asahi Art Square in Tokyo.

It starts with Apollo Nove and his mellow Brazilian grooves. Heard about the Festival au Desert, the Tuareg band Tartit deliver their take of the blues from the sand dunes. One of my real favorites is Taraf de...
