Widely considered leading lights of Japanese music in the United States, On Ensemble infuses traditional taiko (Japanese drums) with jazz and world music elements. The L.A.-based group is at the forefront of young musicians who seamlessly bridge East and West, old and new. Joining them is "koto" and "shamisen" (Japanese stringed instruments) virtuoso Sumie Kaneko.
