Message from Tsuruga Wakasanojo
(from the printed program, Sept. 3, 2017, Yukata Kai)
Thank you very much for coming to today’s Yukata Kai, despite the hot weather. It’s already September, so there’s not much time left for summerlike days.
My students give a concert twice every year, but this time, the program is particularly colorful, including my new work, Japanese traditional dance, and Isekichi’s “Ha’uta Corner”. Although the program is long, please relax and enjoy it to the end.
This year, again, I am giving many concerts. I’ll be performing in various places in Japan, and also in Madrid. I’ll be busy promoting the traditions, succession, and dissemination of shinnai.
