We continue to share our music
Our studio remains closed due to the COVID-19 crisis, but that isn't stopping us from working together, although from a distance. Check out our April newsletter for current activities, plus our home recording of the traditional piece, Sakura Sakura, celebrating the arrival of spring.
Breathing new life into our music
We recently had the privilege of sharing our studio with taiko artist Kris Bergstrom and dancer Minh Nguyen, where we experimented with the choreography to our song Ibuki. Read about our experiences, plus learn about the song Hachijo, an adaptation of a composition by Ondekoza, “demon drummers of Japan,” in our latest newsletter.

We're honored to be called a "clear highlight" of the annual Japanese Festival at the Missouri Botanical Garden as part of a new list of the "Top 15 Things St. Louisans Take for Granted" from examiner.com.
We love performing for thousands of fans at the festival every Labor Day weekend.
