AN EVENING OF SHAKUHACHI, PIANO AND BELLY DANCING by the group Yugao
Friday November 18th, 7pm (for one hour) SOAS, Univesity of London Room G2 Entry is free and open to all
Three young performers from Japan will provide a fascinating mix of traditional, modern and weirdly cross-genre music and dance. The shakuhachi, an evocative bamboo flute long associated with Zen Buddhism, will be played by Koichi Yoshida, who will offer both a traditional solo piece and several pieces accompanied by piano (by Ippei Ikeda) and/or dance (by Jamilla). Jamilla's dancing draws on various cultures for inspiration.
