"In an effort to preserve the traditions of Japanese Koto music, I have endeavoured to create my first CD album - Kyoto Breeze Longing. I am a native of Japan, mother of three wonderful daughters, and an ardent student of the Koto. Due to corporate commitments, I found myself living in the States for the past few years. It was the result of a High School field trip to NYC, that I became introduced to Sarah Lauren. We became very good friends, and it came to pass that it was mentioned that she would love to learn to play the koto. Read more on Last.fm

We became very good friends, and it came to pass that it was mentioned that she would love to learn to play the koto.

Sarah and I agree that the koto produces one of the most relaxing forms of music. She became my dedicated student and we have since performed at several wonderful concerts both here in the States and in Japan. My husband joined me on one of the songs by playing his Shakuhachi. He has been playing for several years, and greatly enjoyed the experience.

In the summer, I returned to my native country; convinced a very old friend of mine, Chikuzen to stop by the Sarah Lauren facility and record another song with me. Chikuzen is a notable Shakuhachi master, who helped me record a second song on my - Kyoto Breeze Longing CD. If you have ever listened to the Koto, and Shakuhachi together, you will agree with me, that the gestalt is both physically relaxing, and yet somehow eloquently stimulating." Read more on Last.fm.
