Hello from Portugal!


#1

Hi to everybody!

Introducing myself to the community (since i didnt made it before XD)
I´m Bruno born in Brazil and recently moved to Lisbon in Portugal.

I work with IT as a Database Admin, but to disconnect from the computer world I often practice Archery (historical bow) and play Shamisen.

When I was in Brazil I had many friends to play Shamisen together and also go to events.

Well, I had to move to Lisbon for work and I meet a great Shamisen player Hibiki Ichikawa. We talked a bit and I managed to get a Shamisen to play here in Portugal (YAYYY!!!)
Now I can practice Shamisen and thats good for sure.
Unfortunately, I don’t think the japanese culture (musical) are very big here.
I now people playing Shamisen in Spain, Germany, UK. but not in Portugal.
If you live in Portugal and play Shamisen, please lets talk and play together!!

I hope I can find Shamisen enthusiasts here in Portugal.

Thankyou all!!!
Stay Sharp!!

Heeey Bruno!

Nice to see you in here! It’s great that you can keep playing in Portugal, and perhaps more shamisen players will show up in Lisbon to join you :blush:

Our friends are always mentioning you, it’s a shame I didn’t have the opportunity to play and get to know you better! Maybe in the future when you visit us? =D

Hello Takashi!!

Sorry for late response, These weeks was crazy in my job.

Well, I only know a feel Minyo musics like Soran Bushi and Tanko Bushi nothing special at all. I wish I could play some Shamisen in this event, but unfortunatelly I´m not sure if I will be in Lisbon on this date.

I have some videos on Instagram if you want to check. @nikoo_calegas
