Koto musician Pico Misaki is set to perform a fusion of traditional and contemporary

Get ready to hear the musical stylings of singer-songwriter Pico Misaki!

She fuses the koto, a traditional Japanese instrument, into contemporary music for a truly unique sound. Her music seeks to express the Japanese cultural concepts like “wabi-sabi” and “The pathos of things”.

Originally hailing from Japan, she has spent a number of years travelling the world, and now resides in Vancouver. She has performed at a number of charitable events, and for the last two years, has graced festival goers at our Nikkei Matsuri with her music. 

We can’t wait to welcome her back again this year to Summer at Nikkei Garden, a Japanese cultural marketplace! She is set to perform on Friday, August 7th & 21st!
