"Lovely afternoon on the street"(au193k)

Playing with Hata Keiko,pianist at Khaju Art Space

Fly with the sound of Koto harp
As a young girl, my mother gave me the opportunity to learn Koto.
This gift of Koto became a 'friend in my heart'. Now I visit many places in Japan and abroad, sharing the special sounds of Koto and Sangen instruments. It is my desire to bring forth a fresh sound and style of music to celebrate the new millenium. Perhaps through many kinds of circumstances and with the assistance of old spirits, my goal will be realized.
