A one-of-a-kind composer, singer and guitarist, Hiroya Tsukamoto (pictured) brings melodic elements from his native Japan to folk, jazz and world music. Having honed his fingerstyle guitar skills at the Berklee College of Music, he takes an imaginative approach to the instrument that the Boston Herald deems "an impressionistic journey." Joining Tsukamoto onstage is percussionist Satoshi Takeishi, a fellow Japanese musician and Berklee alum. A former member of Colombia's Bogotá Philharmonic Orchestra, he brings a knowledge of international rhythms to the duo's original acoustic music. The result is a multicultural repertoire that expands the possibilities of each genre explored.
