The March KIZUNA event is a kabuki music class taught by professional shamisen instructors from Kantakeno no Kai, which offers lessons at the Kyoto International Community House and other locations. KIZUNA presented a similar event last October with great success.
The shamisen is a three-stringed musical instrument used in kabuki and other forms of Japanese traditional music. Participants will first listen to a kabuki music performance (Nagauta) and then practice the shamisen under professional guidance. The goal is to master a simple song.
The class will be beginner-friendly with all necessary implements, including shamisen and plectra, provided at the venue.
This will be a great opportunity to experience a Japanese traditional performing art and make new friends. KIZUNA looks forward to your participation.
