私たちは邦楽の会「和奏伎」という団体で上方三味線の演奏や講習の活動を行っています。和奏伎とは「和を奏でる伎(わざ)」という意味の文字を組み合わせています。三味線発祥の地、大阪や京都を中心に活動を展開していまして、毎年大阪市内の公共施設で演奏会を開催しています。大阪天満宮近くの商店街内に和奏伎本部事務所を開設し活動の拠点として活用しています。上方三味線の演奏を通じて世界中に日本の文化を発信していきたいと考えております。

We are a Japanese music organization based in Osaka who play traditional style Kamigata Shamisen. We both teach and perform Kamigata Shamisen in the Kansai area. The three Japanese characters that make up the name "Wakanagi" mean "Japan", "to play an instrument", and "art" or "technique". Here in Osaka and Kyoto, the original place of modern Japanese shamisen, we perform in various places throughout the year for public events and exhibitions. Our headquarters is located in the shopping district called Tenjin-bashi near the Osaka Tenmangu Station. Through the medium of Japanese Shamisen we strive to communicate Japanese Culture to the world.
 
My name is Hidesetsuhiro Fujimoto, the head of Wakanagi. We welcome you to the world of Kamigata Shamisen.
