Project KANA ~harmonise with infinity
We believe it is important that we understand ourselves and others.
We try to practice this by expressing Japanese culture through Western style music. In this way, we try to build a bridge between these two different cultures. Music can be a beautiful force that unites people from all backgrounds. Additionally, we wish to help create a better understanding through the music of Japanese culture and the Japanese spirit. We hope that this project, “harmonise with infinity” will bring people of all walks of life closer together and create a greater sense of harmony among us all!
We hold concerts abroad, which are known as “Zen Concerts”. In our concerts, we politely explain Japanese culture and the Japanese spirit by using the local language and through KANA’s playing. Therefore, you will be able to understand both the culture and the spirit very well. The Soundscape of "Wa" is a Japanese version of “Zen concert” by Project KANA.

KANA Texas Tour 2019
The 2019 Texas Tour finished recently; I am happy to say that it received excellent reviews. On the first day (October 18), the Japan- America Society of Dallas/ Fort Worth hosted our Zen concert at the Kawai Piano Gallery. An assortment of Japanese food was served at the pre-concert reception. The audience, including those people who were already interested in Japan, were able to discover a deeper understanding of Japanese culture and we received a number of standing ovations. Our three concerts and master classes at universities, Tarleton State University (October 22), McLennan Community College (October 24) and Texas Christian University (October 28), provided invaluable opportunities for young students and local people to learn about Japan and its music. In addition, both music students and students of Japanese were able to discuss their interests with KANA in person.
KANA’s evocative music, accompanied by fascinating images of Japan, captured the heart of every audience member regardless of age.
