[Hara X] — A series of events presented by the Hara Museum featuring various artists whose performance of music, dance or other types of expression will be streamed online from some place within the museum, each time according to the performer’s choice. Join us as they appear throughout the year 2020.
To kick off the series, we are happy to present singer/songwriter Tamaru Yamada who will be accompanied by Hiroyuki Mitsuhata on the guitar. Since her major debut in 2006, Tamaru has been active in a wide variety of areas that include television, commercials, theater and anime. With a voice that blends beautifully with her instrument, the acoustic guitar, she’s been writing her own songs since high school. Over the years, that voice has continued to display the same crystalline quality that speaks directly to the heart. We invite you to enjoy a live performance in the lush courtyard garden of the Hara Museum, a place where another beautiful memory is sure to be made.
