Oyama x Nitta Duo will be performing a Japanese Tsugaru-Shamisen concert at 1:30 p.m. Sunday in Watkins Auditorium of Boling University Center at the University of Tennessee at Martin as part of the 30th Anniversary Celebration of the exchange partnership between UT Martin and Hirosaki University.
Oyama x Nitta is a duo formed by two of Japan’s foremost shamisen performers, Yutaka Oyama and Masahiro Nitta. They perform classic and original scores that display the versatility of the shamisen, a Japanese stringed instrument resembling a banjo with a long neck and three strings.
Sunday’s event is free and open to the public.
