An American, Art Lee is a master of the taiko, a traditional Japanese drum. He formed the successful drumming group TOKARA, whose members include his wife, Yukari. In 2002, Art was diagnosed with an incurable liver disease. Eventually he received a partial liver transplant, but his treatment is ongoing. Art and Yukari maintain an optimistic outlook and advocate for diversity through music. We follow them as they plan a special concert in which drummers around the world will take part remotely.
