I am sending my prayers of support to our Japanese brothers and sisters. They are experiencing grief due to the earthquake and tsunami that hit the coast today. Intensity 8.9 showed its destructive fangs . I also have two pals who have families over there and there is no news as of the moment because of communications and electricity problems.
This is a dark moment in history. It would be appreciated if you all offer a moment of contemplation, especially all of you who are reading this from around the world. As what my friend Jeremy from Poland said: It’s a reminder that the Earth is so much bigger than us, I suppose…
For the taste of Irish music played in Shamisen. This is my favorite instrument and my interest on it grew after reading(and watching the movie version) of Memoirs of a Geisha.
Monsters of Shamisen with Mike Penny, Masahiro Nitta, Kevin Kmetz a remarkable group that is taking japanese Tsugaru Shamisen into a new direction. This time they perform Irish music on shamisen.
