No No Boy Project – The Tour

by Eddie Wong. Posted October 11, 2018.

No No Boy is a multimedia concert performed by Julian Saporiti and Erin Aoyama. Through their songs and visual projections, they create an immersive, emotional experience where history comes to life.  They write deeply personal stories rooted in their backgrounds as Vietnamese Americans and Japanese Americans.  Peter Horikoshi, one of the founders of the Asian American folk group Yokohama, California, will be reviewing No No Boy Project’s new CD “1942” very soon.  Meanwhile, here are some videos that explain why they do what they do.  You can also experience their richly melodic, thought-provoking music in the following video.
