Sac Taiko Dan Concert - Tsugaru Tanto Bushi

I had the privilege of joining the Sacramento Taiko Dan with Aki Takahashi to perform some minyo for their 24th Anniversary Concert.

After touring the historic Crest Theatre and seeing what 1920s-style restrooms look like, we cut over to showtime!

In this segment, Takahashi san and I play a high spirited (and pitched a little too high as well, my bad) Tsugaru Tanto Bushi!

Twas a lot of fun to attend and lend my shamisen abilities to the concert! Many thanks to all!

Did I say shamisen? Yes! Get started with shamisen at!
