J -Triangle: A Special Evening Of Japanese Music In London

Prepare yourself for a fantastic night of music performed by some of the best Japanese musicians London has to offer!

On Saturday 9th of June, two professional Tsugaru Shamisen (Japanese banjo) players will get together at St Leonard’s Church Shoreditch High St in London to showcase the brilliant sound of this Japanese traditional instrument.

Performers include Hibiki Ichikawa, who is currently the only professional player of Tsugaru Shamisen in UK, and Jack, who is a Japan-based ‘shamisenist’ to create his own original sound of Tsugaru Shamisen with a unique twist. Jack will be flying from Japan especially for this occasion.

The performance will be a combination of solo and ensemble performances as well as an accompaniment of Japanese folk singing, which is called ‘Minyo’, performed by Alika Mochida (a regular contributor to Diverse Japan).

Drumming group, Tamashii Taiko, are another ‘must-see’ attraction of the night as well as Chiyowaka Ichikawa, a traditional dancer from Japan.

With the scarcity of chance to hear the real Tsugaru Shamisen ensemble, no music lover should miss this opportunity!

This will be a rare opportunity to see all these acts perform together!

Experience the raw sound of Japanese instruments with the young musicians’ soul!
