Koto Ensemble of the Ikuta School

Koto Ensemble of the Ikuta School


The Koto Ensemble of the Ikuta School is a group following the Ikuta style. The kokyu is played by Sadako Nishimura; the 17 string koto is by Hiroko Mitsuike, and the shamisen by Shukin Noda. The koto ensemble is of the Ikuta school. Ikuta Kengyo (1666-1716) (Kengyo was the name once taken by prominent koto players) merged koto music with the tradition of the more popular, more widespread, and livelier shamisen (a lute-style instrument popular at the time in the entertainment districts of Japan).
