Gagaku Moon Viewing Concert

March 15, 7:30pm - 9:30pm
Manoa Campus, UHM Music Dept - Barbara Smith Amphitheater

Hawaii Gagaku Kenkyukai

Masatoshi Shamoto, director

The centuries-old Shinto tradition of celebrating the full moon continues at this outdoor concert.

Gagaku, the court music of Japan, traces its history to the 9th century, and is considered one of the oldest continuously performed music traditions in the world. Gagaku includes instrumental music, vocal music, and dance.

Gagaku also has a long history in Hawaii.

The music was first taught at UHM in 1962 by Masatoshi Shamoto, who in 1968 founded Hawaii Gagaku Kenkyukai, a community-based group dedicated to the study and performance of this ancient music tradition. He continues to direct the group.
