Taiko drumming and swing music are not frequently mentioned in the same sentence.  So here's a new sentence: San Jose Taiko and the Humboldt State University Jazz Orchestra are teaming up for Swingposium on the Road

It goes beyond music; the presentation features a series of living history events set in a mess hall at a World War II Japanese-American concentration camp.  Amy Uyeki and Terry Uyeki join us to talk about the event and how it came together.
