Japanese musician last performer in music series

Kodo Araki will be in concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 20, ending the Saccarappa Summer Concert Series at Conant Homestead, 89 Conant St., Westbrook.

Araki is a sixth-generation master of the shakuhachi – an end-blown bamboo flute.

“It is a seemingly simple, yet deeply complex instrument with a sound that embodies the very essence of Japanese culture. Araki will be playing the shakuhachi for O-Tsukimi, the Japanese Moon Viewing Festival,” an announcement said.
