Have you ever listened to the sound live of Koto, a traditional Japanese stringed musical instrument resembling a zither? The second round of OnJapan‘s PREMIUM FRIDAY "WA" LIVE invites you into the world of Koto!!

Rin Nakashima, who started learning Koto at the age of five, was a J-POP singer-songwriter before she embarked on a serious music career as a Koto artist. With Jazz pianist Tamashi Goto, her free-ranging playing spans different genres from Japanese traditional music, J-POP and Jazz through to Michael Jackson!! Her performance ranges from the gentle to the passionate. You’ll be excited by her borderless and timeless playing!
