Please join us for an intimate performance that promises to blissfully blur the boundaries of Eastern traditional music and Western contemporary classical.

Following the performance there will be a Q&A session.
Program – for solo koto:
-Five Pieces on Yoshie Hikage’s Poems
-Night Procession of the Hundred Demons
-The Sky Was Beyond Description (for one player on koto and bass koto)
