ShamiCamp: Berlin (A Look Back)

In June 2016, Bachido teamed up with the passionate shamisen enthusiasts of 'Shamisen Berlin e.V' to bring ShamiCamp to Berlin!


With five amazing instructors and over 20 shamisen enthusiasts coming together, the resonance and energy was amazing to feel! Thanks to all the participants who attended ShamiCamp: Berlin, and thanks to the fine folks at 'Shamisen Berlin e.V' for doing an amazing job with planning and arrangements. ShamiCamp: Berlin wouldn't have been possible without your support!

Sincere gratitude for the great instructors of ShamiCamp: Berlin:

Hibiki Ichikawa

Kevin Kmetz

Fujii Reigen

Masahiro Nitta

After a high powered concert at the Morikami museum (video coming later), met the very active member Cody who drove 5 hours just to attend the concert and meet! After corresponding with him on the forum, it was very cool to talk with him in person! Good times, Cody! Next time I'm sure we will have more time to jam! Watch.
Today, we roast coffee, check out Nitta san's questionnaire and make some nori! Watch.
Had an epicly (spelled something like that?) productive time with Nitta san this week! Because of that, I have gigs upon gigs of footage to catalog now. In the meantime, I've just posted a series of pictures from last week's events on Facebook! Watch.
