Copenhagen sakura festival 2021
UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS

English:

Dear all

The Copenhagen Sakura Festival Committee has decided to tentatively plan for a small scale Hanami (Sakura viewing) event in 2021, depending on the restrictions that will be in force in April.
The Committee is hoping that the situation will have improved with vaccine and other precautions to a situation where small gatherings might be allowed, under controlled circumstances.
The aim is to make a festival for a small physical audience and a larger virtual audience, where a limited number of persons with tickets (free of charge) can be admitted to the park to enjoy the blossoms, food and performances.
If the current situation does not improve significantly, the festival will be cancelled (decision to be taken around mid March).

Further information will be posted here on the website and the Copenhagen Sakura Festival Facebook page, so please follow the page for updates and other news.

Best wishes,
The Copenhagen Sakura Festival Committee

Kære alle

Copenhagen Sakura Festival komiteen har besluttet at foreløbigt planlægge en mindre Hanami-begivenhed (Sakura-visning) i 2021 afhængigt af de begrænsninger, der gælder i april måned.
Udvalget håber, at situationen vil være forbedret med vaccine og andre forholdsregler til en situation, hvor små samlinger kan være tilladt under kontrollerede omstændigheder.
Målet er at lave en festival for et lille fysisk publikum og et større virtuelt publikum, hvor et begrænset antal personer med billetter (gratis) kan få adgang til parken for at nyde blomsterne, mad og forestillinger.
Hvis den nuværende situation ikke forbedres væsentligt, annulleres festivalen (beslutningen træffes omkring midten af marts).

Yderligere information vil blive opdateret her på hjemmesiden og Copenhagen Sakura Festival Facebook siden, så følg venligst.

De bedste hilsner,
Copenhagen Sakura Festival Komiteen

Copenhagen sakura festival 2020 cancelled due to COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS

English:

Dear all
It is with a heavy heart, that we have to convey this message to you.
The Copenhagen Sakura Festival 2020 will be cancelled, due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
This decision has not been taken lightly, as a lot of people are involved in the festival, and a lot of guests have been looking forward to the event.
However, to keep everyone from performing artists and volunteers to shops, restaurants and guests safe, we feel that the only option is to cancel this years festival.
A postponement is not an option, unfortunately. The festival simply wouldn’t be the same without the blossoming cherry trees, and the preparation and logistics for a festival of this kind, takes several months to plan. Therefore, we have decided to cancel the event instead of postponing. We hope everyone stays safe, and we can’t wait to see you all in 2021.
Best wishes,
The Copenhagen Sakura Festival Committee

Kære alle
Det er med et tungt hjerte, at vi er nødt til at bringe denne besked.
Copenhagen Sakura Festival 2020 aflyses på grund af COVID-19 udbruddet.
Denne beslutning har ikke været let at tage, da mange mennesker er involveret i festivalen, og mange gæster har set frem til begivenheden.
For at sikre helbredet for alle fra kunstnere og frivillige til butikker, restauranter og gæster, føler vi, at den eneste mulighed er at aflyse dette års festival.
En udsættelse af festivalen er desværre ikke en mulighed. Sakura festival ville simpelthen ikke være det samme uden de blomstrende kirsebærtræer, og forberedelserne og logistikken til en festival af denne art tager flere måneder at planlægge. Derfor har vi besluttet at aflyse dette års festival, i stedet for at udskyde den.
Vi håber at alle kommer igennem denne tid med helbredet i godt behold, og vi glæder os til at se jer alle i 2021.
De bedste hilsner,
Copenhagen Sakura Festival Kommiteen

Mitsune – Shamisen trio

Mitsune is an all-female Shamisen trio based in Berlin, comprising members from Japan, Australia and Germany. Shiomi, Youka and Tina specialise in a unique 3-stringed Japanese folk instrument favoured by the geisha and blind monks of olden day Japan. The women of Mitsune delight in turning tradition on its head, performing an exciting mix of Japanese folk songs, virtuosic modern repertoire and original compositions.

The name Mitsune translates from Japanese as “a sweet sound”, but is also a play on the word “mitsu”, which indicates three of something – the three strings of a shamisen, three women, three cultures coming together in harmony.

Shamisen Trio MITSUNE perform their original piece “Heat”, with special guest Petros Tzekos on percussion:


Tsumugi no kai – Owara folk dance group

Owara Kaze no Bon Festival is held annually over the first three days of September in Toyama in Japan. One of the most lively and popular event in Japan originated over 300 years ago known for its elegant traditional dances.

We “Tsumugi no kai” have performed Owara dancing in many places, such as nursing home, hospitals as volunteer work. We’re very looking forward to introducing our culture, tradition and beauty through the performance in Denmark.
