Scaled koto
2018 is Etsuko Kawaguchi's 10th year in the Adelaide Fringe. Her music has slowly gained a loyal audience. "Blissfully hypnotic climaxing with dissonance and musical momentum. Simply close your eyes and journey to the land and people of Japan." (Adelaide Review) This concert will express her gratitude to all who appreciate and enjoy her music.

Presented by:
Sui no Kai & The Garage International

Etsuko Kawaguchi, founder and director of “Sui no Kai,” was born in Tokyo.
She graduated from Tokyo Arts University in the traditional Japanese Music department and then joined the NHK Traditional Japanese Music Academy and performed with them all over Japan and overseas. Etsuko is noted for her contemporary input into the traditional instrument, thus appealing to a wider and younger audience. Her virtuosity and flexibility in her playing communicates and reaches out to those who are yet not familiar with this instrument.
The koto is a 13 stringed Japanese lute. It is a string instrument, yet also a percussion instrument, for the strings are plucked as well as beaten.
Melodic yet rhythmic, the koto an appeal for all which has been proven for this will be her 10th year in Adelaide.
