    Celebrating the release of Nobuko Miyamoto’s new Smithsonian Folkways album, 120,000 Stories, this program explores how three community-based artists collaborated as musicians, producers, arrangers, and activists. We will discuss Miyamoto’s songs, cultural heritage, identities, and community histories.

    The conversation features Nobuko Miyamoto, Quetzal Flores, and Derek Nakamoto, who produced this album for the new Smithsonian Folkways Asian Pacific America Series. Ethnomusicologist Deborah Wong will moderate.


    This event is presented by Smithsonian Folkways Recordings and co-produced by the Folklife Festival.
