The shamisen, whose name means “three strings”, is a traditional Japanese musical instrument originating from China.

Fumiyoshi plays “Hiki-jamisen”: he puts the importance on the echo of the sound, going beyond traditional Japanese shamisen tunes and taking this unique instrument to new heights. His music is popular in Japan and around the world.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to listen and experience this wild masterpiece.
