Hello there, I am Jan. Living in the middle of nowhere in Eastern Germany. (But my town is famous for Bach…and cows. That’s at least something).
I started out playing Guitar and singing many years ago, but soon after that I started to get into irish bouzouki, classical lute and many other, even weirder instruments. So yeah, I love experimenting with sounds and traditional instruments, mainly in blues and world music styles, which sometimes tends to annoy my fiancé. (Especially if there is throat singing and bowed instruments)
I have been to Japan a few times by now and since 2008 I thought about buying a shamisen, since I loved the sound and the presence emitted by that instrument…just took me 8 years to decide whether to buy one or not… I can be quite indecisive.
