Koto Performance by FUYUKI ENOKIDO
supported by Traditional Irish Music
Friday, 9th June at 5.00pm – €5

koto performance

The Koto is a traditional stringed instrument made from Kiri wood. It has 13 strings that are usually strung over 13 movable bridges along the width of the instrument. Players can adjust the string pitches by moving the white bridges before playing. To play the instrument, the strings are plucked using three finger picks, otherwise known as plectra.

Fuyuki Enokido: Born in Tokyo in 1980 Fuyuki was taught to play the Koto (the national instrument of Japan) by her great Aunt Mikiko Kobashi – the pupil of Michio Miyagi who is considered to have been the first Japanese composer to combine western music and traditional Koto music. Following in their footsteps Fuyuki has received numerous awards for her playing and has performed in over 30 countries worldwide
