EUROPEAN SHAKUHACHI SUMMER SCHOOL RADOLFZELL, 19th – 22nd June 2014

In 2014, the European Shakuhachi Summer School was held from June 19 to 22 in the Weltkloster in the town of Radolfzell in southern Germany, on the shores of Bodensee, the lake separating Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

The Radolfzell Summer School was primarily organised by the shakuhachi-master Jim Franklin (Kokusai Shakuhachi Kenshukan, Europe) with assistance from the ESS. Financial support also came from the Japan Foundation in Germany.

Summer School participants and teachers perform Katsuya Yokoyama’s composition “Goru” in Allensbach
