SATSUMA-BIWA

Heike Samurai' epic

The biwa is a traditional lute that accompanies the singing of the Heike Samurais’ legendary epic, the Heike-Monogatari. The instrument has evolved over the years and this is one of its most accomplished realizations. Kakujo and Kakuryu have studied under Kinshi Tsuruta, the greatest performer from the last century. Brilliant musicians, incomparable narrators of the epic, they interpret the Heikes' battle.
