The Series “Wa, Hana, Shirabe” introduces traditional Japanese music. Many people are vaguely familiar with the music, but have few opportunities to listen to it. Listen carefully to discover its hidden charms.
The 2nd Series focuses on “The World of Seikin Tomiyama – Ballads, Koto Music, Traditional Kyoto Dance.”
Shamisen music accompanied by singing, and ballads that have been passed down through the generations in Kansai.
Seikin Tomiyama (a living national treasure) plays the kind of soft and elegant traditional music heard in the teahouses of Kyoto. Enjoy his music, brimming with emotion.
