Yoshio Hayakawa and Sakuma Masahide Concert

The Center for East Asian Studies sponsored a free concert in the International House on Friday, October 18th featuring Japanese folk rock legends, Yoshio Hayakawa and Sakuma Masahide.

Yoshio Hayakawa is a legendary figure in the history of Japanese popular music. Hayakawa first emerged into the public’s eye in the 1960s as leader of the seminal underground folk-rock band, The Jacks, and this is his first concert outside of Japan. Sakuma Masahide, another key figure in Japanese popular music, will accompany him on guitar.

The Illinois Japan Performing Arts Network also streamed the event live.
