Asian Improv archive
Founded in 1984 by prominent Chicago artist and Asian American community leader, Tatsu Aoki, Asian Improv aRts (AIRMW) has established itself as the foremost Asian American cultural arts organization in the Midwest. Through producing critically acclaimed programs such as the Annual Chicago Asian American Jazz Festival and the Tsukasa Taiko/Taiko Legacy drumming/traditional Japanese music program, AIRMW meets the needs of the Chicago Asian American community for high quality and culturally relevant arts programming.
We are making available for the first time a catalog of archival recordings from Asian Improv artists for streaming representing the in-the-moment creative activity of our affiliated artists from our long history of producing live presentations, including the Chicago Asian American Jazz Festival, and live recordings from various events and venues. These recordings are available to stream free of charge for fair use research and educational purposes.
