To commemorate the centennial anniversary of the (California) Alien Land Law of 1913, Jon Jang has been commissioned to compose Oyama Canon in D, a multi movement work that pays tribute to the Issei (first generation Japanese immigrants of America) contribution to agricultural development in California, as well as their 40 year struggle to resist racist “alien land laws” which denied their family the right to own land. The work will be performed by an ensemble led by Jon Jang, piano/narrator, with Francis Wong, soprano saxophone, Jim Norton, bass clarinet, Karl Alfonso Evangelista, electric guitar, Gary Brown, electric bass,  and Deszon X. Claiborne, multiple percussion.
