Michael Palmer - Tuesday, July 17, 2018

About a year ago Min Kahng's musical theater production based on The Four Immigrants Manga by Henry Kiyama opened its curtains for the world to see. Now the music from the play is set to be released! 

Here is the news from Min's newsletter: 

It's official! The original cast album of The Four Immigrants: An American Musical Manga arrives on July 31st! Creating this album has been a journey all its own since the beginning of 2018, and I am so proud to finally share it with you! I can't say enough Thank You's to the folks who contributed to the completion of the album, but "THANK YOU" nonetheless!

The album will be available for purchase as a CD or digital download via my website:

While you wait for the full project, take a listen to the opening number!
