Wagakki Matsuri – a celebration of Japanese musical instruments – is coming back to the Sunshine Coast for its 2nd year! Once again, we will be featuring traditional and original pieces performed by Dahaza and Bushido, with special guest Min Lin on the Chinese guqin and zheng! This year we will be coming to the beautiful Heritage Playhouse in Gibsons, a short ferry ride over from Vancouver. Come enjoy the powerful and moving sounds of taiko (drums), shakuhachi (bamboo zen flute), shinobue (bamboo folk flute), and the shamisen (3-stringed spiked lute).
Tickets are available online at https://wagakki-matsuri.eventbrite.com or at the door.
