ChikumeishaEU

Chikumeisha, Europe

Background

Chikumeisha Europe consists of local branches in Europe of the Chikumeisha guild of Kinko-ryū Shakuhachi (Japanese only: set decoding to Japanese, shift JIS). The Chikumeisha guild was established in the late Taishō period, originally as an umbrella organisation of shakuhachi players in Japan. In 1921 (Taishō 10) it comprised 43 famous shakuhachi teachers from all over Japan.
Eventually, this umbrella organisation did not hold together, and Yamaguchi Shirō (1885–1963) broke out and made the Chikumeisha his own guild. He was succeeded by his son, Yamaguchi Gorō (1933–1999). Since Yamaguchi Gorō passed away in 1999, the Chikumeisha has been run as an organisation, with a board of elected trustees in charge.


Chikumeisha has its head office at the house of Yamaguchi Gorō, in Tokyo, about 10 minutes walk from JR Yoyogi Station (Google street view/map, marked 竹盟社本部 if you go to the map).

Gunnar Jinmei Linder is head of the European/Scandinavian Branch, but there are other players in Europe who studied within the framework of Chikumeisha, for example Michael Soumei Coxall, who is head of the European/UK Branch.

It is possible to sign up for lessons, both in Europe and in Japan. Please send an e-mail if you are interested or have any inquiries.

* Other popular but not included pieces

(It should be noted that it does not mean that other pieces than those included in the lists above are not performed. Basically, all pieces in any of the jiuta-sōkyoku lineages are part of the repertoire, and a learner it supposed to get aquantinted with other pieces as well.)



Honkyoku

The Kinko-ryū honkyoku repertoire consists traditionally of 36 pieces, but the actual number depends on how you count. "Banshiki-chō" was performed as a prelude, and "Ikkan-ryū Kokū-kaede" is an alternative part to "Kokū Reibo" in the Ikkan style. Maybe they ought not to be counted as individual pieces, evan though they are performed as such today. "Akebono Sugagaki" is a piece with uncertain origin, and it is not mentioned in Edo-period texts. Furthermore, "Tsuki no Kyoku" was composed by Araki Kodō II, and it should not be counted as part of the older repertoire. Furthermore, piece 37 in the below list "Kotobuki Shirabe" was originally part of "Hi-fu-mi Hachi-gaeshi no Shirabe", but is now performed as a separate honkyoku.

There are also three ‘outer’ honkyoku, which are not part of the Chikumeisha Shihan repertoire. They are of course performed, and not seldom as renkan.
