Repertoire

Over the years, members of Nagata Shachu have composed over 75 original works for performance and recording, sometimes only to be played once. Additionally, the ensemble’s catalogue includes several adapted traditional pieces as well as works by other composers. Each of these songs represents countless hours of composing and rehearsing. This page is an attempt to give greater insight into our music. Please click on a title for details, descriptions, commentaries and photos of the song.
