JETAA at Edinburgh Fringe
JET alumni visit Scotland's popular featival
Two of the acts that JETAA went to see at the Edinburgh Fringe were taiko player Kensaku Satou, ‘The Man Chosen by the Spirit of the Japanese Drum’ and Japanese Comedienne Yuriko Kotani.
Kensaku Satou, based in Japan, has won numerous prizes and performed all over the world including at the Closing Ceremony of the 1998 Fifa World Cup in France. His performance was powerful, spiritual and, of course, technically brilliant.
Yuriko Kotani has lived in the UK for many years and won several awards in the UK for her stand-up comedy, including BBC New Comedy Award in 2015. She was highly entertaining and spot on with her understanding and observations of British humour and life!
