Ei-Un-In Temple with Carlos Guerra (bansuri) and Yuji Nakagawa (sarangi)

On Saturday I had the chance to play at one of my favourite venues worldwide - the beautiful Ei-Un-In temple in Kyoto. Thanks very much to Fujisawa-san for organising the concert, and to Carlos Guerra (bansuri), Yuji Nakagawa (sarangi) and Tokko Nakamura (tamboura) for inviting me to accompany them. The concert was a big success, with 101 people coming, the biggest audience I've seen at Ei-Un-In!
