ASUKA on SoundBetter

I am a koto player.Koto is a Japanese Traditional Instrument which has 1300 year history. I can handle all musical genres including classical music, jazz, dance, EDM and POPs, and I'm also good at improvisation.I also accept orders for recordings of Japanese instruments other than the koto, such as the shamisen, shakuhachi, and kokyu.

I'm Koto player and composer. I also produce recordings by real Japanese instrumentalists.It promises to be performed by wonderful players of shamisen, shakuhachi and kokyu etc.Please feel free to contact me.

I graduated with the highest grades of Tokyo University of the Arts which is the highest university of Japanese traditional music.
So, I can playing both traditional koto classical performance techniques and contemporary technique.

My career started from 2013.
Performed at the Armenian Embassy's Concert Organized in Armenia(2013),
Dedicated performance to Princess of Thailand(2014),
Performance at the commemorative ceremony of normalizing diplomatic relations between Japan and Korea(2015),
Japanese-German joint concert in Germany and Austria(2016).
At the same time as playing at these Japanese national events, I'm collaborating with artists and performers who are active in various scenes

In addition to that, I also performed in fashion and social activities beyond the music scene;
Paris Fashion Week 2018 "H&M Runway Show"
TOKYO RAINBOW PRIDE (LGBTQ TOKYO PRIDE)
International Pride (Worldwide Pride)
etc.

I also perform as unit ”YY”.

    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!
