KOTO BRISBANE founder, Takako Nishibori brings the classic sounds of Japan alive through her mastery of the koto, being the greatest exponent of this ancient instrument across Queensland. She performs classical Japanese pieces while exploring new boundaries and creating new styles fusing the koto with other instruments. Takako is a regular performer as both solo artist and in various ensembles.
“Music doesn’t rely on language, religion or race. My dream is that I become a bridge to the Japanese culture as more people enjoy and appreciate the beauty of Koto music.”
