Slow news day? How about news of a newspaper mascot? Yay! On 9/15 Ryukyu Shimpo mascot Ryu-chan will be celebration their 16th birthday! The celebration will happen on Ryukyu Shimpo’s YouTube channel and they mentioned there will be a special guest and giveaways.
If you’ve been following my posts today you’re already aware that I’ve been including accompanying clips found on YouTube. The amount of sanshin-related videos (amateur and professional) you’ll find on YouTube can keep you occupied for days so for those of you with enough free time on your hands to sit in front of your Mac/PC, here are two links to get you started with:
- search: “shamisen sanshin okinawa” (Hawaii-born model/actress/singer Traci Toguchi’s video clip should be at the top of that list)
- search: “sanshin” (in Japanese)
Be sure to let me know (by email karakuipress [at] gmail [dot] com or by leaving a comment on this post) if you find something interesting. Happy searching!
