Japanese fascinating performances in Palermo

Those who had lost Japanese music proposal in the event “La Sicilia embraces Japan”, organized by the Embassy of Japan in Italy, by the Japanese Institute of Culture and by the Cultural Sicily – Japan, can at least plan to annotate agenda in the upcoming occasions and while doing an Internet search.
It was really memorable the music played by Yosuke Irie playing the tradional shakuhachi a kind of flute made of bamboo. The group Munedaiko played the ancient tambourine wadaiko, which function has varied through history, ranging from communication, military action, theatrical accompaniment, and religious ceremony to both festival and concert performances.
Rounding out the charm and the delicate beauty of the performance, a demonstration of kimono dressing by Ikuka Aoki.
