Welcome to the site of Markus Guhe, master shakuhachi player & teacher and taiko performer.
This is a placeholder page containing just a few links until I get round to write a proper page.
I am a shakuhachi teacher and performer with a shihan (teaching license) from the KSK (Kokusai Shakuhachi Kenshukan; see here for KSK Europe) and a senior member of the Mugenkyo Taiko Drummers, Europe's only fully professional taiko touring group. I am particularly interested in combining taiko and shakuhachi.
Having won the first KSK Europe scholarship, I am currently in Japan, studying with my teacher Kaoru Kakizakai sensei. This seemed a good point to start a blog about my journey into taiko and shakuhachi.
I also maintain a (very low traffic) mailing list with occasional announcements of my activities.
You are welcome to email me.
