Good in Gardena performer profile: Kineya Katsujyuuro

Tickets to the lunch and concert are available now! Please join us!

I’m tremendously excited to bring Kineya Katsujyuuro (aka Sawada Seijyuuro) to Good in Gardena, to perform at both the lunch and concert. One of the up-and-coming members of the Kineyakatsu guild, Katsujyuuro is a rare, crossover shamisen player, with stage names in both tsugaru-shamisen and the Kabuki world of nagauta shamsisen. In fact, Katsujyuuro was ranked number one in Japan for tsugaru-shamisen in 2006 and 2008, and even at the young age of 33, is currently performing with top Kabuki stars like Tamasaburo. He will be at the Good in Gardena lunch playing selections of tsugaru repertoire and giving background about the music. At the afternoon concert, he and Katsuyukie-Sensei will demonstrate the differences between tsugaru and nagauta shamisen!

Please come see this amazing player (and get shamisen insider info)!
