Started accordion from the age of four.
Wins a competition for elementary and junior high school students. Appears on TV and radio since elementary school. When he was a high school student, he won the overall victory in the accordion competition.
After graduating from high school, went to France.
Since there was no school to learn accordion in Japan, I studied in Paris for two years.
To learn more in earnest, go to an accordion vocational school in the Obernew region.
In the village where 50 out of 300 people are accordionists, spend 2 years in an environment where only accordion can face nature. While in school, he won the first place in the French competition in various departments. As a Japanese accordionist in France, he has a big topic.
French chanson and muset.
After returning to Japan, he released albums focusing on French dance music “Musette” and “Chanson” and started concert activities. During the concert activities, there were many encounters and discoveries, reaffirming that the accordion bellows is close to human breathing and emotional expression.
Entrust your accordion with your original feelings.
He started writing originals and released an ensemble album "Hidamari" (2004) with 11 artists, and an accordion complete solo album "Solo" (2007).
In 2009, Kanako Kanato arrived at a theme centered on the original song “Namida”, which is not a classic skill nor French music.
The goal is to continue playing the accordion even after the age of 80.
