Koto is a traditional Japanese harp or long zither. Originated in China, it was introduced to Japan centuries ago and ever since, it’s been an essential instrument in the music history of this country. These experienced musicians play several concerts every year. They normally offer an introduction to traditional Japanese music to audiences that may not be familiar with koto and other instruments.

Our Japanese musicians have both academic and professional experience. They graduated from the Tokyo University of the Arts and have been awarded several prizes in different competitions ever since. They’ve been part of different music groups and have been involved in different musical projects with the aim to promote traditional Japanese music.

The ideal live music entertainment for a wide range of occasions, our musicians can introduce this traditional Japanese harp to audiences at festivals, cultural events, corporate occasions, theatres, themed events, and many more. They have already captivated listeners and shared a piece of their rich cultural heritage with listeners all over Japan, Scotland and France, to name a few.
