Now we are planning to appreciate a digest version of Noh performance titled “Shohjoh”. Noh is one of Japanese traditional performing arts. It is described as a highly stylized masked dance-drama with songs and musical instruments.
“Shojoh” is one of the happiest Noh performances. An imaginary creature “Shojoh” drunkenly dances with songs of celebration.
