FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
No-No Boy returns to Chicago for multimedia performance giving voice to the Asian American experience and underscoring relevance to current events.
On Saturday, September 29, 2018 No-No Boy, a multimedia concert performed by former indie rocker Julian Saporiti and vocalist Erin Aoyama will make the Chicago stop of their fall national tour at the Midwest Buddhist Temple. Taking inspiration from interviews with World War II Japanese American Incarceration camp survivors, his own family’s history living through the Vietnam War, and many other stories of Asian American experience, Saporiti has transformed his doctoral research at Brown University into folk songs and video images in an effort to bring these stories to a broader audience. Alongside Aoyama, a fellow PhD student at Brown whose family was incarcerated at one of the ten Japanese American concentration camps, No-No Boy aims to shine a light on experiences that have remained largely hidden in the American consciousness and underscores their relevance to current events beyond the Asian American community. The concert will begin with a special introduction by Chicago’s own Ho Etsu Taiko ensemble.
