Japanese traditional music performance.
Come enjoy an entertaining and educational concert with shamisen virtuoso Sato Michiyoshi on his second US tour! Sato is an award-winning performer of Tsugaru-jamisen, a dynamic style of music played on a three-stringed Japanese banjo called a shamisen. Sato’s performance glides between traditional and modern, classic and popular modes, and incorporates improvisation, singing, and comedy. The event will begin with introductory remarks by Dr. Joshua Solomon of Hirosaki University.
