Takagi Keiko’s album Koto Diary #001 debuted on the Top 20 Best Sellers List at NativeDSD Music one week after release. The album’s first appearance in the world was its release here at NativeDSD.
Keiko is a Japanese traditional instrument koto performer. All the songs on Koto Dairy #001 capture the landscape of Karuizaa, a resort area where she lives. While using traditional Japanese instruments, Keiko’s music blends Eastern stylings with Western influences.
Vivid invites our listeners to “Please enjoy the beautiful melody playing the sound of the koto with complicated and distinctive harmonics not found in Western instruments.”
