Integrate my music in your daily life!
I’m a composer, oud and lute player from Japan and live at the border between France/Germany.
I compose and play modern style music on these traditional instruments – and try to touch your soul and support your daily life.
I studied historical music and music ethnology in Cologne/Germany and the Hague/Netherlands.
After each recording, i add only some reverbs and don’t change the original sound –
WHAT YOU LISTEN, IS WHAT I PLAY!
Oud & Lute – King of Instruments
The origin of the oud belongs to the ancient times and similar instruments were used by the Babylonian and ancient Egyptian. Until today, oud is played as the “king of instruments” in Arabic culture.
The oud found his way to Europe in medieval times and it became “lute”. During the Renaissance the lute was also regarded as the “king of instruments”.
