After their successful 5th Anniversary Concert in fall and the 1st Holiday Concert in winter, Oregon Koto-Kai (Japanese Koto Society of Oregon) is proud to present another special concert on Sunday, February 19th at 2:30 PM. It will be held at the Community Music Center in Southeast Portland.
At this concert, OKK features authentic Japanese music played by koto (Japanese zither) and shamisen (three string lute). Players wear elegant kimonos, the traditional Japanese costumes. The program includes “Rokudan (six steps)”, composed in Edo period and “Sakura (cherry blossoms)” for koto ensemble. The audience will enjoy the journey to the old Japan.
Oregon Koto-Kai is an ensemble group playing this instrument since 2012, instructed by koto master Mitsuki Dazai.
