Tonight Michiko-san took us to a sanshin and koto concert in Okinawa City. Most of the songs in the program were classical court music: very dignified, very precise, very slow. Since I’ve been sharing a lot of sanshin music, here’s a koto piece to mix it up. And it’s all women!

And here’s a koto and sanshin duet. The male singer/sanshin player kept his eyes forward the whole time, never looking down to check his fingers. I was quite impressed with both of them.

Upbeat music to come!
