About us



Noh, the pride of Japanese traditional entertainment and the oldest stage art in the world, is a discipline that expresses the elements of singing & dance, similar to European opera and musical theater.

"縁 ~enishi~" synergizes the fascinating beauty of Noh and the musical expressiveness of the piano.

The partners in this unique collaboration are a revolutionary Noh artist, Tsunao Yamai, and Kentaro Kihara whose artistry and versitility takes him all over the music scene as a contemporary pianist and composer. The collision of these two souls, beyond the walls of culture, creates a new fantastic world.

Japanese eternal dance, the melancholic melody of piano and the song of Noh intertwine and expand into a theatre experience unlike any other.
