About the Event

$20 per person (light refreshments included)


Sanshin is the core of Okinawan music, dance, and even opera/theatre. Okinawan people love the sound of the sanshin, and its popularity is widespread in Japan and overseas.

San means "three", shin means "string(s)". The sanshin is a "three-stringed" banjo made of a snake skin-covered wooden body and a long, thin wooden neck. The history of the sanshin goes back to the 14th century.

You are going to learn the brief history of the sanshin and how to play Tinsyagu nu Hana, a traditional Okinawan lullaby with the sanshin! You will learn how to read the kunkunshi scale (工工四) and finger positions.
