Shinobue is a Japanese flute that can both be played as street music and during sophisticated artistic representations. It is sometimes accompanied by other traditional instruments such as taiko (Japanese drum) or koto (a plucked stringed instrument).
Artist Nozomi KANDA is part of Tsunagari village and awaits you at her booth to talk to you about her preferred instrument and gives you the opportunity to try it out. You will also be able to discover her on the Sakura stage during a musical demonstration with other Japanese instruments in collaboration with musicians and students of Atelier de Flûte.
Tsunagari village (or the link village) is a new area where you'll get to discover five festive Japanese arts through varied animations. Go meet its associations and workshops to try out shinobue flute, sanshin (a plucked stringed instrument that traditionally accompanies folkloric songs), yosakoi (a sportive Japanese dance), taiko (a Japanese barrel-shaped drum) and awa odori (a folkloric dance also known as "the fools' dance")
