Event Info

Nagata Shachu Japanese taiko and music group is proud to present, “Kaze” (Wind), featuring Toki Tatara – master bamboo flutist from Japan. The performance will be one that seamlessly combines the worlds of the thunderous and thrilling rhythms of taiko, the haunting and festive melodies of the shinobue (bamboo flute), and the flashy finger-picking riffs of three-stringed shamisen while exploring new possibilities for these traditional instruments.

Toki Tatara 朱鷺たたら , born in Kyoto, has spent her musical life in the research
of bamboo flutes. She actively composes and performs many of her
own works, having cultivated both Japanese traditional and Western
classical techniques. In pursuit of the full potential of the shinobue
which is somewhat nostalgic in the souls of the Japanese people,
Tatara performs music that touches upon the hearts of this
generation. Tatara has recorded several CDs and is the Director of
the Japan Shinobue Association, professor at Okayama Niimi Public
University, and shinobue music club instructor at the Ueno Gakuen
Music University.
