Once upon a time, in a land far from Japan called “The 6ix,” there lived a girl named AIKO TOMI. Her head was full of songs that she wanted to play for people but alas, she did not play guitar and playing keys did not allow her to dance; and where's the fun when you can't dance?
One day, at a music store, a beautiful white keytar appeared before her and she realized that it was more than love at first sight; it was destiny at work. Together, they make lots of music and have never looked back.
Many modern Taiwanese share a similar story as AIKO TOMI. Raised by parents and grandparents whose lives were influenced to various degrees by Japanese culture, piece by piece we stumble across clues in our heritage and re-invent who we are.
