A great opportunity to listen to and learn to play "Tsugaru Shamisen" in Kuroishi City; the heart of Tsugaru region in Aomori!

Kuroishi also is known to be the birth place of Tsugaru Jongara folk song, which is often accompanied by Tsugaru Shamisen.

I was born in Kuroishi City about 60 years ago and grew up with the sounds of Shamisen and Jongara folk song. Please come enjoy the dynamic sound of professional live Shamisen performance that have been loved both locally and internationally.

(just a note; we may not be able to give fluent background lecture or shamisen instruction in English, but we have written materials ready for you to learn about Shamisen. Plus, once you start playing a shamisen, the sound is universal. ; ))
