‘Zenkyu(‘P‹v) iOcarina, Quena, Sho, Tuba Player)

Ocarina is a gift from the earth...I was charmed by
a mysterious and healing sound of ocarina and now
I hold concerts in many places. I am thankful for
this instrument in helping me to meet many people.
I'd like to heal the tired hearts of people in this
modern age.
