ShamiCamp: Berlin (2016)


Bachido members of the EU, we are coming to you! Bachido has teamed with “Shamisen Berlin e.V.” and together we’re bringing ShamiCamp to Germany!! It all happens from JUNE 24th to 26th 2016!!

What is ShamiCamp?

In the continued pursuit of sharing knowledge and developing bonds within the shamisen community, Bachido has established ShamiCamp — An intensive multi-day workshop series where the best Shamisen instructors unite to teach their skills, developed over a lifetime of dedication to their art, to passionate shamisen enthusiasts from around the world.

The Instructors

The instructors of ShamiCamp are five phenomenal players who all strive to bring shamisen to the whole world. These inspiring teachers can’t wait to share their knowledge and support your enthusiasm of shamisen! I’ll also share some sweet riffs too!

Where else can you learn from positive, high-level instructors in a fun atmosphere with a group of fellow shamisen enthusiasts?

Shamisen Berlin e.V.

In the culturally flourishing city of Berlin, Martina Kopp and Su Bunjamin became entranced with the sound of the shamisen, and they began learning and enthusiastically developing their techniques ever since. To spread the joy of this groovy instrument, together they founded Shamisen Berlin e.V., a growing group of shamisen enthusiasts. With a supportive atmosphere, they encourage their group to learn songs, build skills and expand awareness for shamisen in Germany.

After ShamiCamp: Tokyo (2015), Kyle reached out to Shamisen Berlin e.V. with the idea of joining together to bring ShamiCamp to Berlin, and they graciously accepted!


June 24th to 26th
Start/End: 11 AM / 7 PM (Each day)

Join today!

It’s a rare opportunity to learn from this many supportive instructors in a positive group environment. If you’ve been studying shamisen and are excited to meet other shamisen enthusiasts, then it’s time to join your friends at ShamiCamp: Berlin!
