Have you ever listened to a live mandolin performance?
The Italian mandolin, the type most often played today, was born in Napoli in the 19th century.
It is an essential instrument for Neopolitan folk music and also used in a wide variety of classical music.
The mandolin is also familiar as one of the first instruments for children because its tuning is the same as the violin.
This time, the ICC will be hosting a special talk session and performance with world renowned mandolin performer Carlo Aonzo.
He has even previously performed for Pope John Paul II in Rome!
There will also be a special session in collaboration with the Waseda University Mandolin Club.
From bright and energetic to melancholic and sorrowful, this is your chance to experience the beautiful sounds of the mandolin live.
First time listeners are very welcome. Don’t miss out!
