Stand up straight!” one teacher shouts.“OK,” another says. “Who remembers this song? Leticia — silence! Kenji, come on, we’re gonna make music.”The scene plays out at a school in Tokyo’s industrial hinterland, but all the chatter is in Portuguese. The students and teachers are Brazilian, and the music includes samba and bossa nova. Advertisement The class is part of a project called “Music Without Borders,” the brainchild of Rafael Kinoshita, a 35-year-old Brazilian who endured a difficult childhood here as an outsider and believes music can help spare his students from that kind of distress.Japan has long considered itself the unique homeland of a single race: the Japanese.

Seven years later, his Me2/Orchestra — no relation to the movement against sexual harassment and assault — has grown to nearly 60 members in the flagship ensemble in Burlington, Vt., and has branched out with affiliate ensembles in Boston, Atlanta and Portland, Ore., with Pittsburgh poised to start its own chapter in the coming months.
