ten ten


ten ten is a Japanese music ensemble led by Aki Takahashi on vocals and shamisen (three-stringed lute). Together with Kiyoshi Nagata and Tony Nguyen on taiko drums and bamboo flute, the trio performs original music inspired by Japanese folk songs known as Min’yo. In the Japanese alphabet, “ten ten” refers to two dots used to change the sound of a syllable. In the same spirit, the ensemble strives to create its own unique voice for Japanese folk music breathing new life into this traditional art form.
