Dr Koji Matsunobu on the Jinashi tradition
Dr Riley Lee on "Hitori Mondo / Solo Dialogue on the Shakuhachi; musings
by Hisamatsu Fuyo (1853)", translated by Tom Hare and Riley Lee.
Hisamatsu (1790–1871) was a shakuhachi player from the late Edo period,
a student of Kurosawa Kinko III. His musings (this is one of several)
might be the only extant writings by a 'komuso' about the shakuhachi
and its relationship with Zen Buddhism.
15:00 Group & Individual Performances
Everyone is encouraged to take the opportunity to perform. Whether beginner
or advanced student, solo or group, whatever piece or even just a Fu (Ro),
there is no better way to focus the learning mind and boost playing
standards than to present to others.
