Minidoka Swing Band
Step into the live music of the Portland-based Minidoka Swing Band. The Minidoka Swing Band tells the story of WWII’s Japanese American Internment using the Big Band music of the era, actual home-videos taken from inside the camps, and narration by actual survivors!
The Minidoka Swing Band uses poetry as well as personal stories by jazz musicians and band members whose parents and families were incarcerated.
This is the third part in the Living in Minidoka series.
