SOUND PRODUCTION AND SALES
We accept orders for sound production using traditional Japanese musical instruments such as Shamisen, Shakuhachi, and Wadaiko. Hagiwara will support you with real knowledge and insights about the culture.
We are able to coordinate a wide range of performances, from small shows on public streets to stages for bigger audience. We are happy to support you from an early stage of your plan.
ESTABLISHMENT OF A NEW GENRE
Our mission is to present and distribute the Japanese traditional music such as Shakuhachi, Koto, Shamisen and Wadaiko to the world. Though Wagakki(traditional Japanese instruments) is a niche market worldwide, we aim to establish a new international genre of “Japanese traditional music” by importing the tradition to the pop culture and distributing it multilingually
DAIDOGEI (JAPANESE STREET PERFORMANCE)
In Japan, “Daidogei” (street performance) and “Geinin” (street/comic performer) are sometimes looked down on, because of its history. Unfortunately, the stereotype still remains today. On the other hand, Japanese traditional musical instruments, traditional dance and grand Kagura are highly-acclaimed overseas.
We are able to cast a variety of performers: from world-class Daidogei and circus artists to performers who may be called “underground”. With the rich experiences and personal connections gained through his long career as a performer, Lio Hagiwara, the executive director of Bentensha, will surely meet the expectations of oversea clients in need of Japanese performances.
