Bachido Chats: Alcvin Ryuzen Ramos

Earlier this year, I met up with Alcvin Ryuzen Ramos - A master shakuhachi player who started taking on the shamisen with great dedication and passion!

We sat down and chatted about how he got started in the hougaku (traditional Japanese music) world. He then graciously joined us in my shamisen group lesson, and later on came to BachidoHQ, where we dabbled in a bit of throat singing!

Great to finally meet you, Alcvin! (And again a few months later!) Looking forward to jamming with you again soon!

Alcvin sent me a message time ago regarding the biwa searches for the project I'll start next year
