Our friend shakuhachi player, Koichi Yoshida, and his band Yugao have a show coming up on May 3rd with shamisen player Mika Shigemori and singer songwriter Fumiko Kojima. This is promises to be the real sound of Deep Kyoto!
What would a “Kyoto sound” involve, aesthetically speaking? Certainly it would resonate with the austere, poignant sensibilities of long tradition… But it would also embrace the world with sensuous reserve.
This May 3rd, the Hitomachi Koryukan will host a concert exploring the profound tradition, and evolving possibilities, of the Kyoto sound. Representing the lineage of Kyoto’s musical artistry is shamisen player Mika Shigemori. She is joined by Yugao, Kyoto’s most popular fusion band, featuring music for shakuhachi, piano, cello, and tabla. Join us for a uniquely powerful, only-in-Kyoto musical experience.
Part of our event’s profit will go towards the Japanese Disaster Fund.
