HCM CITY — Saxophonist Katsura Yamauchi will perform from 6pm to 8pm on March 16 at Salon Saigon on 6d Ngô Thời Nhiệm Street in HCM City’s District 3.
Katsura picked up his first saxophone in the early 1970s and was quickly drawn to modern jazz, avant-garde and free improvisation.
Before 2003, he was relatively unknown, but has now shown himself to be one of the most unique musicians in Japan.
He has toured the US and Europe, and performed at many festivals such as Musique Innovatrices 2005, Castello Canalis 2007, Beppu Contemporary Art Festival 2008, Ftarri Festival 2008, Amplify Festival 2008 and Asian Meeting Festival 2009.
Tickets are VNĐ300,000 and VNĐ200,000 for students and Salon Saigon members. — VNS
