ShamiCamp: Tokyo (October 2017)

Without a doubt, it was the most successful ShamiCamp we have hosted, and have finally created a format which can smoothly bring together players of varying skill levels and experience. No doubt, this format has something for everyone, and can be carried over from community to community.


Wow that's amaaazing!!! :D I so wish I could've been there haha, but I won't be in Japan til around this time next year at this rate.
I especially love the klezmer-y stuff on day 1, the master level lectures, those team building exercises, and the original compositions! … So all of it really :p
Great job everyone!


Cool to see this going strong, looks fun as ever!
