Yoko Ono on Contemporary Japanese Culture and Music

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 28 min
Event Type: Interview and Music Program Origin: WBAI

From a program broadcast on Pacifica station WBAI in 1965, Japanese avant-garde artist and musician, Yoko Ono, talks about the traditional music of her homeland. Ono describes the history of music during the early part of the Showa Period in Japan (1926-1989), and sings songs for unaccompanied voice which highlight various aspects of that time and culture. For those whose only knowledge of this important artist pertains to her relationship to John Lennon and her work as a peace activist, this program, featuring a young Ono discussing traditional Japanese music, should serve as a reminder of her varied career and great intellect.
