The Movement: Concert with Charlie Chin, Philip Kan Gotanda & Friends

July 20, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us Sat. July 20 for an afternoon of live music and conversation with former CHSA Artist-in-Residence Charlie Chin, Philip Kan Gotanda, and friends.

In 1979, the Japantown Art and Media Workshop (JAM) put on a concert featuring storyteller/musician Charlie Chin and playwright Philip Kan Gotanda. Charlie was part of the first Asian American “movement” musical group along with Chris Kando Iijima and Joanne Nobuko Miyamoto who performed songs about Asian Americans and their communities starting in the early 1970’s.

A recording of this 1979 concert has just been released as two CDs. To celebrate their CDs release, the artists will play a few songs and share some thoughts about the concert and their experiences as Asian American musicians and artists. Philip Kan Gotanda will perform a set with Peter Horikoshi while Charlie Chin’s set will feature a few songs with CHSA Executive Director Tamiko Wong.

Retail price is $15 per CD plus tax. Purchase both CDs at a discount for $28 (including tax). Both CDs included with Priority & VIP Passes.

See Ticket Options below for VIP Pass, Priority Pass, and Concert Ticket prices.
