沖縄三線

Sanshin Class

The sanshin (三線, literally “three strings”) is an Okinawan musical instrument and precursor of the mainland Japanese (and Amami Islands) shamisen ( 三味線). Often likened to a banjo, it consists of a snakeskin-covered body, neck and three strings.

This is a class for beginners so no experience or knowledge is required. Instruments are provided. In the class you will learn traditional folk songs from Okinawa.
