Japanese fingerstyle guitarist was born in 1988. He started playing music since he was 12 years old.

He then released his first solo album.
Fingerstyle is a new genre of solo guitar music in Vietnam. Playing fingerstyle guitar has become popular in Vietnam in recent years. One simple way of describing this genre is that with only a single guitar a performer can play as if he is an entire band. Fingerstyle brings about a whole new perspective for the acoustic guitar and is currently drawing attention for the guitar-music genre from our community.
Perfromances will take place at VOH Music One in HCMC on April 5; at Nguyen Hien Dinh Theater in Da Nang on April 6; and at Youth Theater in Hanoi on April 7.
