Tsugaru-Shamisen Performance by Ohno Keisho
About Ohno Keisho
Born in Niigata, Japan, Ohno Keisho started playing Tsugaru-shamisen at the age of eight. Becoming recognised as a natori - an accredited master - at only 12 years old, he was approved two years later by Takahashi Chikuzan 1 as an authorized successor of the Chikuzan-bushi shamisen school. Constantly inspired by various genres of art and known for his high musical technique and innovative performing style, Ohno is gaining a steady artistic foothold in Europe.
