In this immersive, indie-folk concert, singer-songwriter Julian Saporiti and vocalist Erin Aoyama illuminate the Asian-American experience through song, storytelling, and imagery. Taking inspiration from interviews with World War II Japanese incarceration camp survivors, his own family’s history living through the Vietnam War, and many other stories of the Asian-American experience, Nashville-raised Saporiti has transformed his doctoral research at Brown University into folk songs to bring these stories to a broader audience. Alongside Aoyama, a fellow PhD student at Brown whose family was incarcerated at Heart Mountain, Wyoming—one of the 10 Japanese-American concentration camps—No-No Boy aims to shine a light on experiences that have remained largely hidden in the American consciousness.
Please join us for a post-show talk with artists Erin Aoyama and Julian Saporiti, moderated by Theodora Yoshikami.
