What is kenbu?

“Kenshibu (剣詩舞)” is a traditional Japanese performing art that combines two styles of performance: “Kenbu (剣舞)” and “Shibu (詩舞).”
a type of creative performance staged with a Japanese folding fan and a katana sword.

Both involve performing to the accompaniment of recitation, creating a form of artistic expression deeply rooted in the poetic traditions of Japan.
