Prague Shakuhachi Festival 23-27 August 2013

Just back home again from Prague Shakuhachi Festival. This festival was smaller but the line-up of guests was extremely good and interesting. Mitsuhashi Kifu (shakuhachi), Mika Kimura (voice), Kikuo Yuji (strings: koto, shamisen and kokyū and he also plays biwa), Tanaka Takafumi (chief editor of Hōgaku Journal) and Christopher Yohmei Blasdel (shakuhachi). Apart from that we were Pamela Kurstin on theremin, Jim Franklin, Gunnar Jinmei Linder, Vlastislav Matoušek and myself on shakuhachi.

Great music, great students, great place and great discussions – all about shakuhachi ! ! ! 🙂

  1. Hi Kiko. Great to see you playing your Ax! It has been a very long time since Mills. I’ve been playing much trumpet.
