In conversation with his wife Dahlia, UW Tacoma student Jonathan Ohashi shares his research into Tacoma’s Nihonmachi (Japantown), with a specific mention of the music that would have been experienced by Tacoma’s pre-war Japanese-American population.
Jonathan produced this podcast episode as an assignment in the UW Tacoma class “Musical History of Tacoma,” taught by Kim Davenport in Winter Quarter 2021. The podcast is dedicated to Jonathan’s Japanese immigrant grandmother, who was lost to COVID in March 2020.
