Japan is hosting a series of free concerts to express its gratitude for the support it got following the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

The first concert organized by Japan's mission to the UN along with the Japan Foundation in New York is at UN headquarters Monday and there is another Tuesday at Lincoln center.

The concert features Ondekoza, a professional Japanese drumming troupe, along with other musicians from Japan.
