Jazz adage often attributed to Miles Davis
There is a core rhythm of spoken English language: Even when we read silently from the page, there is musically as we 'hear' the written word.
Haiku, originating from Japan, is the famous poetry of extreme brevity. In a relaxed inclusive atmosphere, as part of the exhibition Music in China, we will experience the notes and musicality that are in haiku too.
Tony McNicol, Co-Founder of We Do Japan will introduce premier award-winning sake (from Sake Samurai) to our taste buds as well as explain the magic, depth, and notes of Japan's signature drink: www.wedojapan.com/who-we-are/
The evening will act as a taster of both sake and haiku in a very friendly, inclusive, and informative atmosphere.
