Japanese Music: Shakuhachi and Koto

This concert of traditional Japanese music will include Yodo Kurahashi II playing the shakuhachi and Miyuki Yoshikami playing the koto. They will be performing with Dr. Jon Kenzen McCollum of Washington College who will also be playing the shakuhachi.

Yodo Kurahashi II is one of Japan’s great Master Shakuhachi flute players. He has been with this beautiful and evocative bamboo instrument for more than 40 years. His father, also a famous shakuhachi player, was his first teacher as a young boy and Kurahashi-sensei eventually became head of his father’s dojo: Mujuan dojo.
