About Blues Live musicians
GEN: Blues Harmonica & Guitar
You might assume looking at Gen holding his acoustic guitar with a harmonica in a mouth holder that his play style is like old folk singer and musician. But his unique style of instrumental music is what he likes to call “HikiBuki”or Play & Blow.
While he mainly plays traditional music from around the world, he enjoys a wide range of music regardless of the genre. For his unique style he won the award in the Blues and Rock category at the 32nd annual FIH Harmonica Contest held by F.I.H. Japan. He joins jam sessions, plays and sings in bands and also teaches.

Aki Kanke:Blues Harmonica & Vocal
Have you heard of “Hamosolo”? It’s playing harmonica & singing with no backing music and is how Aki describes her style. Slow, shuffle, 8 beat, similar to Jazz…. doesn’t matter when or where it’s from Aki plays a wide variety of Blues.
She has performed at Jams, with bands, and at Jazz festivals including the Sumida street Jazz Festival.
As a duo with pianist Takagi Fuminori, she experienced playing on a big main snow sculpture stage at Tadami Snow Festival.

The heart of the landscape of Tadami
Avalanche chute is a word that refers to the distinctive geographical features, produced by large amounts of snow. The slopes of the mountains have been worn away by frequent avalanches and eventually exposing the bedrock.
