Event: Sennin no Sanshin (Hawaii)

Okinawan musical instrument, Sanshin players can be a part of the 17th Honolulu Festival Grand Parade!

The grand marshal will be Sanshin Master Choichi Terukina-sensei, a National Living Treasure of Japan. Let’s join the parade with Terukina-sensei and play his composition “Mensore.”

The goal of SENNIN NO SANSHIN Project is to have as many sanshin players as possible to participate in this parade.

We want 1,000 sanshin players from Hawaii, mainland USA and Okinawa! […]

(Via Honolulu Festival.)

The awesome thing? They’re serious about having anyone with a sanshin join in by making available the music and kunkunshi of the song. You’ll find them here along with video tutorials. Way to go, guys! (How about having the video available in other formats besides WMV too? People on smartphones will thank you for it.)
