On monday night Linda invited me to a Japanese lounge night and I really wasn't sure what to expect. It was held at the club where I went to do the Burlesque life drawing, so was expecting all sorts. It turned out to be an evening of people playing traditional Japanese musical instruments - not something that I would have thought I'd enjoy, but it was actually a great evening and great to get a feel for what is out there. My favourites were the Japanese flute made out of bamboo and the Koto, a beautiful wood and string instrument which sounded like a combination of the guitar and the harp.
