about

ten ten's second album "KO-BANASHI" (SHORT STORIES), grew out of the rich cultural mix of sounds and languages which breathes life and vibrancy into the city of Toronto. Please have a listen to these original musical anecdotes which combine the day-to-day experience of the city with the sounds and rhythms of my beloved Japanese shamisen and taiko.

てんてんの二枚目アルバム「てんてん小話」は、カナダのトロントという土地で生まれた無国籍で雑多な音と言語がごちゃごちゃにつまっています。わたしの愛する三味線や太鼓といった日本の音色と調子にあわせて、つれづれなる日常の小話をこっそりお聞かせいたします。
