New KSK teacher in Europe
Alexandra Kraus has been issued with a KSK Europe junshihan-menjō under the signature of Jim Franklin, after many years of study with him. We welcome her to the ranks of professional shakuhachi teacher/performers in Europe.

Due to the ongoing CoVid19 pandemic and the resulting restrictions, virtually all live activities of KSK Europe have been cancelled. We hope that the situation will change in 2021, and that we can present workshops and performances again. But at present, concrete planning is impossible. We will present new information here as soon as possible.
In the meantime, we offer the following YouTube videos by KSK Europe teachers for your enjoyment:
