Happy New Year! Here we are at the start of a new decade, the Year of The Rat--which happens to be my Asian zodiac sign.
I designed my Nezumi-chan pin to commemorate the occasion. She is representative of myself as a shamisen player. 2020 is the year of the metal rat, hence I elected to create this pin in rose gold.
I am very grateful to everyone who has purchased pins, thereby supporting my art and music. This year, I have decided to make more of a conscious effort in further developing myself as a musician. I found myself at an unexpected, yet important turning point near the conclusion of 2018. Shamisen is a big part of my life and will continue to be!
