Note: this is a 7-week course
LATI's first mochi-pounding course!
With support from Toshi and Yuta Kato, key members of San Francisco's mochi-pounding group, "Kagami-Kai", this course will teach participants the essentials of mochi pounding, from rice preparation to "kine" and "bouzuki" pounding and final apportionment. Participants in this first-ever course will help to develop the music that supports the pounding. The seven-week course is perfectly timed to prepare for the ATUS/LATI Bonenkai year-end celebration, December 20.
Join from the beginning to help make mochi-pounding one of the great artforms LATI can perform!
