The Rubin Tsukumai
Tsukumai means "the dance of the moon" in Japanese. A duo of koto and shamisen player/vocalist Sumie Kaneko and flutist/shinobue player Nobuko Miyazaki, Tsukumai is a unique, authentic blend of Japanese and Western music.
The duo effortlessly weaves in traditional and contemporary music, original compositions and improvisations into their atmospheric performances, charming audiences with their cultural and spiritual journey.
In May 2013, the duo made its debut performance at the Still Mind Zendo, and has since been performing at various venues throughout the New York area.
