    I asked Asuka to perform and record some koto parts I wrote for a Japanese track, and she did an excellent job, providing me with 2 different versions that I can blend together so that I can totally make her performance shine in my music. Also, she delivered quickly and neatly.
    Totally recommend her for all your koto needs!
