    The opening night of this year’s EIGASAI features a performance by Shamisen player Keisho Ohno on July 3, 6 p.m. at The Grand Atrium of Shangri-La Plaza Mall. Ohno is a master of Shamisen, a three-stringed Japnese traditional music instrument.

    Keisho started learning the shamisen at age 8 and received accreditation at only 12 years old. Two years later, he became the first authored successor of authentic “Chikuzan-bushi” shamisen player.

    He has since toured America, Africa, and Europe for the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) conference, as well as the Japan Expo 2019 in Paris, France.

    One of his original music compositions named Samurai was used as a theme song for the New Year Ekiden or marathon relay race held and broadcasted nationwide on the New Year in Japan.

    Other public performances include the following schedules:

    • July 4, 6 p.m. at the Gateway Mall and
    • July 6, 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Shangri-La Plaza.
