Shunsuke Mizuno has long worked on his own flavour and individual style of Asian music that can be understood throughout the world.
"I believe that we can find our peace and healing of heart in Asian music," Shunsuke Mizuno says, and you can indeed feel it in this music.
Shunsuke Mizuno is co-founder of the Skydog Blues Band. He studied at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, performing with Makoto Ozone, Toshifumi Hinata, Joseph Jarman and Tim Donahue.
Shunsuke himself is a bassist and works in Japan with a group of exceptional musicians, including Miwa Inaba (13-, 17-, 22-string koto) and Aya Motohashi (hitiriki, Japanese oboe), with whom he also performs internationally. He exclusively uses acoustic instruments for his music, such as the tan kin, shou, shakuhachi, santoor, sitar, tabla and western instruments including the harmonica, piano, guitar and a 5-string double bass.
Soft tones from Asia celebrating the slowness of time.
