Nagauta Shamisen - Makoto Nishimura
A great new site, with a bounty of information - totally in English! My friend Makoto has been teaching shamisen, flute and drums mainly to the foreign community here in Tokyo for many years. Her yearly concerts, often held at traditional Noh theaters feature a wide variety of music and dance - including not only traditional Nagauta but also Noh Shimai and Koto!
