Come hear one of Japan's signature musical instruments, the shamisen, or Japanese lute, as master player Aki Takahashi performs traditional folk songs. Born in Japan and trained in Kyoto, Aki is Associate Artistic Director of the leading Canadian taiko drumming group, Nagata Shachu, and teaches taiko drumming, shamisen and voice. She is founder of the Japanese Folk ensemble ten ten, and has performed with numerous artists from a variety of other cultural backgrounds and traditions. She also creates her own original compositions and has choreographed dance pieces to accompany her music.
Sponsors of this show are Tucson's Odaiko Sonora taiko drumming group and the Southern Arizona Japanese Cultural Coalition.
