Can anyone help me find the score for Hakata bushi or lend it to me? I am giving a presentation next week on the Japanese Antarctic Expedition led by Shirase Nobu in 1910-12. I have just discovered that one of the expedition members played the shakuhachi and that one of the pieces he played was Hakata bushi. I thought it would be a nice touch to play a piece that he played in the Antarctic 100 years ago. Unfortunately I don't have the score and I can't find a copy online.
Any help gratefully received.
With all good wishes
