Have you heard of Gagaku? It is a type of music that was originally brought to Japan from the Chinese continent, and is known to be the oldest surviving music in Japan.
The Kobe PR Ambassadors were lucky to be invited to a special performance at Ikuta Shrine on Monday 12th March 2018, which included not just music, but dancing too.
Gagaku Etenraku, an ensemble music performance
Kagura Ikutamai, a shrine maiden dance unique to Ikuta Shrine
Bugaku Ranryoo, a solo dance featuring a performer in a dragon mask, accompanied by traditional music
Gagaku Choukeishi, a final ensemble music performance
