You are all invited for the yearly European Shakuhachi Summer School in Vejle, Denmark! The website is up and running and the registration for early bird has begun.
At the core of this year’s gathering is the notion of bonding together as a community. This year participants will have the choice to share all meals and stay under the same roof at a boading school. All 3 meals will be freshly made and brought to us from an award-winning café in Vejle.
Many of the leading shakuhachi teachers in Europe will be present – and from Japan we will also have Kogetsu Maekawa, an outstanding teacher/performer of Kinpū-ryū, Myoan-ryū and Echigo style. From Europe, we will have Wolfgang Fuyūgen Heßler, Hélène Seiyu Codjo, Gunnar Jinmei Linder, Suizan Lagrost, Véronique Piron, Jim Franklin, David Hughes, Gina Barnes, Kiku Day, Naoko Kikuchi, Torsten Olafsson and José Seizan Vargas.
The extra time we have together we will for example use to discuss WSF18 in London, so that the World Festival can become a festival for all of us.
