CityStream: Rhythms & Rituals
CityStream: Rhythms & Rituals

We "pound" out a story on an ancient Japanese ritual that brings family and friends together and ends with a chewy treat known as mochi! Then, from pounding to drumming - we talk taiko. For thousands of years, this synthesis of rhythm, movement and spirit has captivated audiences. Now, a Seattle taiko master is drumming up excitement for a new generation. Plus, when it comes to saving lives - there's an app for that. A new phone app directs people trained in CPR to someone nearby in dire need. Host Nicole Sanchez brings you these stories from the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Washington.
