The Principles of Traditional Japanese Singing

[Performing Arts Workshop] September 16, 1:30 PM

World-renowned shamisen master Hidetaro Honjoh leads a workshop that explores the diverse range of traditional Japanese songs written for shamisen accompaniment. From the melody-driven utamono to the story-driven chanting of joruri, this workshop will introduce the fundamentals of how classical shamisen music is structured and vocalized. Great for composers, performers and researchers alike, the methods expounded upon in this workshop will provide a valuable point of reference for future singer/songwriters.
