An Irish traditional music band based in Tokyo
Aiko Otsuki (Fiddle / Vocal)
Daishi Nakamura (Bouzouki / Guitar / Accordion)
A traditional Irish music group formed in 2012.
In addition to regular performance activities at the Irish pub in Tokyo, a group of talented artists who also back up Japan tours of overseas artists in bands.
In addition, each member has appeared in overseas festivals, etc., and is highly regarded not only in Japan but also overseas.
▶ Aiko Otsuki (Fiddle, Vocal)
I was shocked by the Irish Fiddle CD that I first heard when I was 17 years old and mastered by myself. Her style, which attracts audiences with outstanding sense and technology, has already been proven in numerous Irish music groups in the country. Her singing voices at pub songs and ballads that she began working on since O'Phan participated in 2012 are also highly evaluated.
▶ Dr. Nakamura (guitar, bouzouki, accoridon)
musician. Perform and compose using various musical instruments. As a member and individual of various groups, he is engaged in the performance and spread of Irish music. He performs a wide range of activities such as performing on stage, participating in recording of movies and TV anime music, and supporting performances by singer-songwriters and bands.
▶ Takeaki Nagahama (Bodhran)
In Ireland, where he first visited in 1992, he was fascinated by the music of Ireland and the unique percussion instrument Bauron. Since then, loved over a dozen times. He also studied local traditional music and experienced architectural space design. In addition to performing as a leading Bauron player in Japan, he also organizes concerts and workshops for Irish music native players and dancers as a producer.
