I had a intense week of meetings and sharing in
London world shakuhachi festival
The program was very dense, 5 concerts each day, workshops, masterclass and lectures all the day long with 80 professional guests, masters, performers, teachers, scholars or makers…
A good opportunity to perfect the ability of choosing !
I herewith decided to focus on meeting the different shakuhachi makers (about 10 people) each one having his personal approach or making philosophy. Thus I could glean some precious informations, good advices, contacts (for potential visit to Japan) and positive feedbacks on my flutes.
All in all, a very good energy received for moving forward in my work !
I could also deepen my overall culture of shakuhachi and Japanese music with all the lectures and during the day of symposium dedicated to researchers on a variety of fields all linked with shakuhachi.
This has really nurtured and strengthen my passion for this marvellous instrument, confirming me in my bamboo way and my will to dedicate to it.
Thanks and bravo for all the organizers and helpers who could make this beautiful event happen.
Rendezvous in 2022…in China !
