A Brief Moment of Culture

As requested - a picture from the CWU trip. This is from a show in Kyoto on Friday, where we saw examples of about six or seven different traditional arts (in 50 minutes...they were very efficient). This particular picture is from the section on Japanese court music, or "gagaku".

If you look closely you might see the back of a CWU student's head. (Maybe. I'm not really sure who everyone is in there...)

*Side note - If you're interested, check out this site, which has a little more information about gagaku, as well as a nice close-up of the impressive helmet the dancer is wearing.
