Performed at the station & Reduced memory capa for Video;

Performed at the Railroad Station 
Last Sunday, the band group my husband involves was invited to perform at the country side station called "Atu-station 厚保駅".  So surprised when I heard the professional Jazz Singer called "Barusan" was also invited. I am happy if you can enjoy the atmosphere of the country side station and the performance of the band group on the "Truck" ;-)

Sorry that the video is a bit long (4 min.)

My husband looked happy to be able to try "shakuhachi 尺八” for the first time
from the other group's member. 

Reduced Memory Capacity for uploading video 
This topic is just in case you will find it helpful for you, 
and if you already knew how to do it ;  please skip reading p-;) 
The file of the video up there was too big (long?) as usual. When I did the right clicking of the file, I happened to find the "file converter" in the list.  Converting to "Mp4" was helpful reducing the memory. Lower quality worked for uploading. 
I was happy it worked as I sometimes have videos I wish to upload.
*Please enlarge the picture to see it clearly*

We are having Soba guests tomorrow, sorry for posting early..

Thank you very much for stopping by.
Wishing you will have a wonderful  new week;

  5. Miyako - please do not apologize for the length of the video. I really enjoyed listening to the music - I almost felt like I was there! And how surprising that the "low quality" video conversion turned out so well. I appreciate this suggestion. Thanks as always for linking to Mosaic Monday!
