Roebuck-san’s Nagauta shamisen performance at the recital of Kineya family, Part 1

Roebuck-san is from the U.S, practicing shamisen as an apprentice of the master Rokukimiro Kineya. He has already spent many years in Japan, commanding perfect Japanese in both speaking and reading including complex Kanji characters. He came to Iseyoshi to tailor his costume for his first performance at shamisen recital in the National Theater. He told me he knows very little about kimono.

We exchanged namecards first and I asked about his taste, colors he likes and his lifestyle. Among the rolls I showed he selected rolls for his kimono and haori. Then measuring. He said he would not have any occasion to wear kimono other than the recital. 

After a while, the kimono and haori is tailored!

He said he would not have occasions to wear kimono in his lifestyle, but I offered tsumugi fabric in dark navy considering his social standing. it has small hanaori pattern, so it is fashionable when you see it up close, but the fabric looks plain in a distance ensuring the class required on stage.

Haori is not worn on stage, so we decided to give a little playfulness. The pattern is auspicious Shippou (seven treasures) connectted crests in Japanese ink color.

Roebuck-san selected the formal sendaihira for his hakama. Kakuobi is a rare item, dark green and brown stripe in ooshima fabric.

Lining of haori and juban are matching material. The long string of haori is tied in a bow as a Kabuki actor style. The string is a grey-color round naragumi (yo-kaku), easy to tie even if you are a novice in kimono. Han-eri is light grey for the formal occasion.

Continue to Part 2.
