Get a taste of the musical style that fascinated Saburo Mochizuki enough for him to leave the kumidaiko world!
This workshop intends to share Mochizuki’s passion - the art of Kabuki-bayashi (musical accompaniment for Kabuki theater) through hands-on exercise, demo and lecture. You will learn rhythms and phrases of Kabuki music for each of the three instruments used in the ensemble (Tsuzumi, Ookawa, and Shimedaiko) with emphasis placed on the Shimedaiko.
