Hill Center is thrilled to welcome ASA-CHANG & Junray as part of our Global Sounds series and Multiflora Productions’ annual music festival, Flash of the Spirit.
Asa-Chang & Junray is the name of the Asa-Chang experience, and comes from the ‘Jun-Ray Tronics’ soundsystem used by self-taught tabla guru Asa-Chang. The word also means ‘pilgrimage’ – Asa-Chang is on a mission to take music to places it’s never been.
DCist says: “Asa-Chang is considered Japan’s premier recording percussionist, and he has also toured with wildly popular J-Pop acts. He comes to the Hill Center with his band, Junray, for a rare East Coast performance.”
