Highlighted performances

We would like to highlight these artists and their performances at the festival, as they are quite unique to the Copenhagen Sakura Festival.

Koto & shakuhachi

Ayumi Shimonoto is a Yamada School koto and shamisen performer. She graduated from Tokyo University of Fine Arts and Music and performs in many different genres including traditional and modern.
Kiku Day is a shakuhachi player from Denmark with Japanese roots, who is trained in classical shakuhachi solo music that used to be played by the begging monks. In this tour the two performers (at times supported by Sakura Yuka on koto) will play duets, solo pieces both traditional and contemporary music, and pieces composed by the performers in collaboration.
