It was wonderful from start to finish. The vocalist fit in nicely with the amazing musicians. For one piece toward the end she played a taishogoto. It sounded great and was very interesting. The strings are in a small section and the rest of the beautiful instrument has buttons and keys. She played the strings with a bow. It was set up on the floor and she crouched down to play it. I loved the sound.
The music and the
band was phenomenal. I wanted to get up and dance so badly. It was
surprising that the place was less than half full.

Folktales from Japan. A rare performance
of otherworldly original compositions rooted the tradition of tribal
music commonly heard on Sado Island. Not to be missed!!!
