    PROFILE
    Takemoto Oritayu / Borin in Nishi Shinsaibashi, Osaka in 1975. Takemoto Oritayu was born to a family where he has the 2nd Tsuruzawa Dohachi, the Bunraku shamisen player as his grandfather, Tsuruzawa Seiji as his uncle and Tsuruzawa Seiki as his younger brother. While appearing in “Nihongo de asobo (Let’s play with Japanese)”, an educational children’s TV program on NHK E-TELE, Oritayu plays an important role in promoting the charm of Bunraku. He is also the winner of the 28th Sakuya Konohana Prize (2011), the 34th Matsuo Geino Shinjin Award (2013) and Osaka Bunkasai Grand Prix (2013).
    NOTE
    In Bunraku, the narrator (tayu), the shamisen (a three stringed Japanese lute) player and the puppeteer form a triad to create a theatrical art. Bunraku’s origin can be dated back to the early Edo period (early 17th to mid 19th century). It is a traditional and comprehensive art where austere and complex stories are exquisitely presented through various elements such as buoyant, humorous and ravishing dances. It is also listed among UNESCO’s “List of the World’s Intangible Cultural Heritages”.
