We are excited to present Hashi Duo at our studio in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn. Formed by Costa Rican guitarist Adrian Montero and Japanese pianist Moe Takamatsu, they endeavor to create a musical bridge between the seemingly distant cultures of Japan and Latin America. They will present a cross-cultural program of music that combines traditional and contemporary composers from Japan and Latin America. Hope you can join us for this lovely evening of music!

Music Starts at 7:30pm
