If you’re going to go ahead and say “We Know Entertainment” on the front page of your website, you’d better know what that thing is. What is that thing? If Sternberg Clarke knows entertainment so well, shouldn’t they know what that thing is? Well we should and we do.
For a recent corporate event at Nomura, we provided a Japanese inspired trio comprised of Japanese Harp or ‘Koto’, Japanese flute or Fue and a distinctly non-Japanese Cello. The trio performed a selection of traditional Japanese classical pieces as background music for a drinks reception where guests enjoyed the stunning views over the Thames.
The Koto, the national instrument of Japan, is usually a 13 string instrument that’s laid flat and played with three fingerpicks. The strings are adjusted with a number of movable bridges (or Ji) before playing allowing for a number of different tunings. Many of the parts of the instrument are named due to the instrument resembling a dragon - the ‘Dragonhead for instance, consists of the Dragonhorns and The Dragontongue, the opposite end is known as the Drafontail.
