The musical instrument Violyre was created in Japan in 2001. The Taishogoto that was invented 100 years before this served as its model. The quality of the tone of the violyre differs based on the playing method. Using a bow makes it sound like a violin. Strumming it with your fingers makes it sound like a guitar. Playing it with a stick makes it sound like an ethnic musical instrument, a zither or dulcimer. This will be our first time to perform in Hawaii. Please enjoy.
