RPAC will once again host the Australian Shakuhachi Festival which consists of intensive, semi-residential workshops and a public concert.
We are honoured to have the three great Japanese teachers, Furuya Teruo, Matama Kazushi and Kakizakai Kaoru for ASF20. They will be joined by Australia’s own Grand Master, Riley Lee, plus three other highly-experienced Australians. These shakuhachi masters will teach in the workshops and perform for the public concert.
ASF20 is the perfect introduction for absolute beginners who want to learn how to play this ancient bamboo flute, as well as a great opportunity for those who have some experience to further develop their skills. The public concert on Saturday night will also be a rare chance to experience the beauty of this ancient instrument when played by Japanese and local masters, who have a collective experience of over two hundred years of performing the shakuhachi.
