March 23, 2010: Yoshio plays the Koto

March 25, 2010

Yoshio plays the Koto in his new Lowell apartment.

The koto is a Japanese musical instrument sometimes called the “Japanese Harp”. It was introduced from China in the 7th or 8th C. and has (usually) 13 silk strings with 13 movable bridges. The strings are plucked with pics on the musicians right hand.
