Very sad to report that another traditional artist from the camps has died.
Masayo Arii has passed away at the age of 90. Mas was interviewed in the Hidden Legacy film about her learning shamisen and singing from Kineya Jyorokusho at Gila River. She was a founding member of the Chidori Band in San Jose, mother of Mary Arii Mah (Bando Misayasu) who was also interviewed. Our sincere condolences and thoughts go out to the family. Her legacy will live on through her contributions to the community in her beautiful voice and all she did.
