Tea ceremony, Miyako Odori, Kyoto, 2011

I was in Kyoto last year and was very impressed by the Miyako Odori Geisha dance, by the expressiveness and sophistication of its music, broken purposefully by exclamations that added to the feeling of restrained eloquence.

There are also great Japanese music concerts in Europe, I attended to one at the Japanese Culture Institute of Cologne (it was played by Kikuchi Naoko and Carin Levine).
