Bachido Blogcast E98


For the very first time, we have a Bachido Booth! Grant, Anne and I attended the 28th Annual Japanese Cultural Fair of Santa Cruz, where we introduced shamisen to the fine Santa Cruz public, got sign ups for a Santa Cruz group workshop, and lastly performed on stage with the great jazz-trained shakuhachi master Karl Young!

It was a blast to perform with these fine folks and attend this always-fantastic fair. Looking forward to coming back again next year!!


Nice work! What is that mon up there?


Thanks, Karl! :slight_smile:

I’m not exactly sure. It’s the mon for the culture fair.


Keep Santa Cruz weird!


Hahaha! Yep, that’s our signature shirt! :slight_smile:

On Nitta san’s first trip to Santa Cruz, Mama got him that shirt. :wink:


Yeah awesome!!!
