Japanese Pop & Anime with Classical, Jazz, and Funk Twist
Thursday, August 10
10 – 11 a.m.
ORiHANA is a modern J-pop project reimagining iconic songs from anime tv series and movies, as well as popular songs by celebrated Japanese musicians like Kenshi Yonezu, Mika Nakashima, Radwimps, Angela Aki, Suneohair and others. Founded by award-winning musicians, violinist Olya Prohorova and pianist Hana Fujisaki, ORiHANA brings a fresh take to well-known Japanese songs, rearranging them for violin and piano / keys while implementing the two musicians' classical and jazz background. Their work can be seen on the ORiHANA YouTube Channel, Instagram and Facebook.
