Mukashi, mukashi

Yoshi Hioki and Chisa Majima

Mukashi, mukashi

Jam session of stories and koto (Japanese harp) 

Traditional Japanese tales always begin with this phrase: “Mukashi, mukashi...” which in English would be “Once upon a time...”. And that’s exactly how Yoshi Hioki, a Japanese storyteller, will be starting each of the stories he has waiting for us. The narration will be woven together by melodies played on a ‘koto’ (Japanese harp) by Chisa Majima, as if they were delicate rain falling on a bamboo forest. A fusion of storytelling and ancestral music that is being put on specially for the Veranos de Villa festival.

In collaboration with the Japanese Embassy in Spain and the Japan Foundation
