Kitanodai Gagaku Ensemble

The Kitanodai Gagaku Ensemble, established as a public interest incorporated association in Japan, has engaged in activities to promote international cultural exchanges, and to educate and raise the aesthetic sensibilities of the younger generation through gagaku. Gagaku is the classical Japanese court music and dance with over a thousand-year history, which was registered as the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO with its historical, and artistic values.


The Ensemble has given performances at commemorative friendship events hosted by the government of Japan and many workshops at academic institutions in Western and African countries, as well as in Australia, as projects subsidized by the Japan Foundation.


Presently, the Ensemble players have been receiving lessons from Mr. Shogo Anzai, a former principal conductor of the Music Department at the Imperial Household Agency.
