What is Rakugo?

Rakugo is Japan’s traditional art of storytelling which dates back to the 16th century. Rakugo storytelling originated with short stories and the stories gradually became longer. The narratives are based on a wide range of topics, from comical to sentimental, and sometimes even tragic. They are conveyed by a lone storyteller seated atop an elevated stage called a koza, using only a paper fan and a hand towel as props. The tales involve conversations between multiple characters and the storyteller switches fluidly from one character to another, changing his voice, facial expression, and mannerisms to fit the character who is speaking. A slight turn of the head and a change in pitch is used to indicate a switch from one character to another.

Join us for our special lecture to experience an unrivaled wealth of arts of Orin (Singing Bowls & Bells) created from a traditional metal casting method practiced by Master Kazuya Nanjyo who is visiting from old capital Kyoto, Japan.
Singing Bowls are known to help balance the Chakra energy system.  Each Orin is specifically tuned to a chakra frequency.  When Orin are played, and particular sound frequencies are projected into a dis-eased area, correct harmonic patterns can be restored.
Feel and experience the genuine and exceptional sounds of his handmade Orin which puts a tremendous amount of effort into the procurement process which vibrate with each chakra.
