Famous Japanese composer, pianist, and recording artist - Yo Kano will present a one-night-only-charity concert on Thursday, July 10th at Gaya Fusion of Senses in Sayan, Ubud.
Born in Japan and playing piano form the age of five, he quickly became famous as a child performer on Japanese television and variety shows. Although Yo was stricken by blindness at the age of nineteen, this did not dissuade his musical career, moving to Tokyo and establishing his own group performing his original musical compositions. Already an artist signed to the Polydor Label in 1981, he traveled in the 1980's to New Zealand, Australia and the United States under various government and privately sponsored scholarships.
In New York he studied at the Lighthouse Music School under the famous jazz pianist Lance Heyward.
He has since then divided his time between the U.S.A. and Japan, recording a number of popular albums as well as performing as a special guest at the birthday celebrations for the King of Thailand in 1999.
Yo has a special interest in assisting the visually impaired and wrote the theme song for the World Congress on Technology for the Disabled for the United Nations. He regularly teaches courses on computer sequencing technology to blind music and computer students around the world and is a co-founder of the International Communication Service for the Blind (ICSB) - a non-profit group that disseminates information on technological advances and employment opportunities for the visually impaired.
