The Kurashiki-shi Geibunkan is sure to be a popular spot for classical music fans with performances by singer-songwriter Masayoshi Yamazaki, who will play his songs with a quartet, and composer Yugo Kanno, who will be joined by musicians to perform pieces he created for productions such as the NHK television drama "Gunshi Kanbei" and the anime "JoJo's Bizarre Adventure."
Local musical talent, ranging from taiko (Japanese drum) performers to jazz bands, will be waiting in the wings at the Kurashiki Shimin Kaikan and the Mabi Fureai Center.
The festival will also focus on the traditional performing arts. Among other events, there will be a staging of "The Tale of Genji" starring kabuki star Ichikawa Ebizo XI, and a rakugo (comic storytelling) show led by veteran Sanyutei Enraku VI. official website ›› http://www.kurashiki-tabi.jp/
