The Tale of the Heike, Vol. 7 “Chikubushimamoude”
*Please note the volume.
Some parts may be difficult to hear due to the sound of the venue being left intact.

The venue we were served is a quiet basement studio usually used for yoga and fitness. The venue is so quiet and comfortable that you can hear the second hand of a wall clock. The Tale of the Heike, listened to in one’s sleep type of concert is telling a beautiful or sad scene from the Tale of the Heike, and I changed the repellent I usually use because it is too energetic. This plectrum was a gift from my master, and when I received it, I thought my heart would burst out of my mouth with joy. It is reassuring to know that he is coming to the venue with me.

▼Master Seishu Suda will be speaking on March 23, 2024. Please come.

What was foreshadowed this time was the obi and hairstyle of the hakama. At a time like this, my chest…I can’t breathe! My head, my U-pin…hurts! I will study again so that I will be okay next time.

I was grateful for the feedback I received after the performance. I was surprised at the freshness of the audience who had never heard the storytelling and Heike biwa, which I take for granted. I would like to be able to make people want to listen to the Tale of the Heike again and to listen to various types of biwa. I have a lot of challenges, but I also have a lot of dreams! I will cherish my daily practice and performance opportunities. Thank you to everyone who listened, to the Yokohama Triennale, to the venue owner, and to the support staff.

We are presenting the same program in April and May, so please come if you have time. We look forward to seeing you at the venue.
