Overview

I’m interested in the music of 17-19 centries, in particular in chamber music by Geisha and village songs by working people.
The main instrument used by them was Shamisen (a string instrument) which came to Japan from the continent through Okinawa in the 15~16 centuries and simultaneously women called geisha appeared as an entertainer and artist. Their songs with the accompaniment of shamisen was introduced all over japan in a short time.
