Traditional Instruments of Japan TodayFinished.

Featuring the yesterday, today and tomorrow of Shakuhachi through Dozan Fujiwara (player)
with world premiere of commissioned work for the instrument by Kyo Ichinose (composer)

Shakuhachi is a traditional wind instrument made of bamboo. The name comes from the traditional measurement system. The length of Shakuhachi is 1 shaku and 8 sun (pronouncing “i-shaku-ha-sun”); 1 shaku is 30.3cm, sun is one-tenth of a shaku, and hachi is "eight" in Japanese. Thus, the name Shakuhachi means 1.8 shaku (approximately 54.5cm) which stands for the standard size of the instrument.
Dozan Fujiwara, a shakuhachi virtuoso will present the wealth of tone colouring created by shakuhachi through subtle changes in pitches of the player’s blowing angle.
A new shakuhachi piece commissioned to composer, Kyo Ichinose, will be performed by Dozan making its world premiere.
There will be a lecture and a talk show on the history, present and future of shakuhachi.
