ATZKO KOHASHI

Bio//

 

I'm  a  jazz pianist, born in Japan and currently residing in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Before moving to Amsterdam, I had lived in New York for 7 years. No matter where I live, no matter whom I play with, despite the differences of nationalities, cultures and backgrounds, we always find common ground in jazz music - improvisation.

Virgo_Albumcover.jpg

Virgo is the sixth astrological sign in the Zodiac and the Goddess of Innocence and Purity in Greek mythology. The word “Virgo” means virgin in Latin and the Virgo symbol is designed to depict Virgin- innocence and purity.

Innocence and purity are also important elements for Japanese aesthetics, which generate simplicity and freshness. You see it in many of classic Japanese art form such as choreography, ink brush paintings, ikebana (art of flower arrangement), sado (tea ceremony), noh (the oldest Japanese theatrical art), etc. Innocence and purity also encourage artists’ creativity and spontaneity.
