Duo KUUKUU kontserdi teema on „TÜHJUSE ILU“ – selle mõtte, sõnapaari mõistatamine, interpretatsioon jaapani bambusflöödi (shakuhachi) repertuaari kaudu ja ka eesti rahvamuusika improvisatsioonid põimituna väikekandlega ja rubapiga (Kesk-Aasia pikakaelaline lauto).

KUUKUU (jp. k. tühi/tühjus/tühine, vakantne) on duo Tartust, kes kannab ammust koosmusitseerimise rõõmu – nakkust, mille ilmnemisel on vastupandamatu vajadus teineteist helidega masseerida ja tajuda muusikategemistes õnnetuuli.

Mõlemad pillimängijad on alustanud ühise huviga euroopa keskaja-
ja rahvamuusika (iiri ja eesti) vallas. 1990-date algusest pärinevad ka duo esimesed kirgastavad ja innustavad improvisatsioonid shakuhachi-flöödi ja näppepillidega (tollel ajal klassikalise kitarriga). Roland Suits peab olulisemaiks eeskujuks shakuhachi suurmeistrit Takashi Tokuyamat ja on saanud temalt õpetust ja juhendamist. Toivo Sõmer on lautomängu lihvinud erinevate meistrite käe all nagu Rolf Lislevand (Norra), Paul Beier (Itaalia) ja kandlemängu krutskeid õppinud Viljandi Kultuuriakadeemias.

KUUKUU:
Roland Suits – shakuhachi, vurr
Toivo Sõmer – väikekandled, rubap, kell

Kontsert toimub Genialistide klubis.
Piletihind 6€ (õpilastele ja pensionäridele 3€).

Jaapani kuu on septembris algav AniMatsuri festivali raames toimuv ürituste sari, mis on mõeldud Jaapani kultuuri tutuvustamiseks igas vanuses huvilistele. Jaapani kuu hõlmab filmiõhtuid, ettekandeid, kontserte, töötubasid ja palju muud. Üritusi jagub seekord Tartu kõrval veidi ka Tallinnasse.

The theme of the duo KUUKUU’s concert is “THE BEAUTY OF EMPTINESS“ – pondering and interpreting the meaning of this pair of words through the repertoire of the Japanese bamboo flute (shakuhachi), which is interwoven with improvisations on Estonian folk music on the small zither and the rubap (a long-necked lute, string instrument widely disseminated among central asia peoples).

KUUKUU (in Japanese empty/emptiness/paltry, vacant) is a duo from Tartu who have shared an infectious joy in making music together for many years. When this “infection“ makes itself felt, there is an irresistible need to massage one another with sounds and feel the winds of joy blowing around them through music-making.

Both performers began with a common interest in the music of medieval Europe and folk music (Irish and Estonian). The duo’s first inspiring and illuminating improvisations combining the Japanese bamboo flute (shakuhachi) and stringed instruments (at that time the classical guitar) date from the beginning of the 1990s. Roland Suits considers shakuhachi grand master Takashi Tokuyama to be his most important mentor, from whom he has received instruction and guidance. Toivo Sõmer has polished his lute-playing under the direction of different masters such as Rolf Lislevand (Norway) and Paul Beier (Italy), and added to his tricks and twists of zither-playing at the Viljandi Culture Academy.
