Kenji’s Light of Hope, is dedicated to Kenji, a young man with Down syndrome, who is a keen percussionist at Igari MTRC. Kenji’s home was badly flooded during the tsunami, and he was rescued with his family after 3 days. Let’s ensure that he’s able to play the sound block again on all the samba and Latin tunes that he loves!
