They are going to have a Rakugo show in English. It is quite exciting.
Rakugo is a genre of Japanese traditional narrative/comedy where the storyteller sits on the stage alone and tell the funny stories that always have significant punch lines. What amazes me the most about this production is, that they put such a traditional Japanese story which is very subtle and so profound into English just marvelously. Quite marvelously. So please stay tuned for the updated info for the show.
Aside from that, today was one of the most gorgeous days in this ever-changing unpredictable sky of May.
I decided to skip the Hula class (Sorry!), and was drinking a little bit on the fire escape while I was listening to the music of Makana, the Hawaiian slack-key guitarist.
I have seen his live performance about five years ago at Hard Rock Cafe in Honolulu. I was staying at my friend's house and her family took me there to show the live Hawaiian music. That was my very first time.
I was, I was just so speechless. Okay, of course by his superb techniques. But also by the perfect weather of that evening. I can still feel the wind that came down from the hill in such a perfect timing when he was playing his composition Koi...It was certainly one of the most beautiful moments in my life.
Since then his two albums Koi Au and Kiho'Alu that I immediately bought at the show are my remedies when I find myself in a bit freaking out mood.
The result was...ha ha! I think you know. Night!
