Beautiful! Are there any USA psalterists who have learned Nozomi's technique?

Beautiful.  I am an old new beginner.  Hope to do 1/10 as well someday!  Thanks for sharing.

 Congratulations Nozomi-san, your playing has been an inspiration to all of us. Its a very small award from a small but worldwide Bowed Psaltery community, we all say thank you for your wonderful Bowed Psaltery playing!

Thank you very much for choosing this video for the first showcase videos of The Psaltery Strings. I feel so honored to find out that this video was chosen. 
Today members of Makoto Kato's group held a little party for me to celebrate the first showcase video.  I will upload a photo with big xxx from Japan.  It made me so glad to know that they were as delighted as I was about the video. 
I have so much respect for you all. To the Psaltery Strings thank you.  I love you.

Bright melody and well played

Featured Video

Amplified Psaltery with Cello Strings built by Rick Long

This video is a personal favorite because it shows a unique type of bowed psaltery with a gorgeous sound. When I heard it I broke out in goose bumps!
