Shamisen Player & Performer

Item No. 1988 ✉ Email A Friend Buy
A delightful painting of a shamisen player plucking his instrument while a performer hides his face with a fan. The shamisen is believed to have been introduced to the Japanese from the Ryukyu Islands in the mid 1500s. By the Edo period (1603-1868), it had come to be widely used in many genres of music, especially folk and popular music. The shamisen, as this painting illustrates, also came to be implemented in a wide array of performances, such as kabuki, bunraku puppet theatre, and storytelling.
