National Theatre, London

September 16, 2008

I recently played in a concert at the National Theatre, London with the group ‘Haru Ichiban.’ The programme consisted of some sankyoku, arrangements of Japanese folk tunes and some shinkyoku such as ‘Haru no Umi’ by Miyagi Michiyo. The group is led by the koto and shamisen player, Rie Yanagawa. The maiko dancer Akiko Kobayashi was the star of the performance.
