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.
