Japan Matsuri Presents… The SOAS Min’yo Group

The SOAS Min’yo Group are based in London and meet regularly to practice and perform min’yo, which are Japanese folk songs. Regions of Japan have their own folk songs, and the group perform these using traditional instruments. In this performance, we’ll see how the group have been continuing over lockdown, and you’ll learn about the history of the music before each performance. Minyo expert David Hughes will take us though the songs, which are collected form past festivals and from the SOAS Min’yo Group’s zoom meetings.
