At the age of 16, She joined the Ryukyu Classical Music Preservation Nomura Style Association, and began to study Ryukyu classical music. After graduating from a university in Okinawa, she went to Canada and shared her wonderful Okinawan culture. When she returned from Canada, her Sanshin journey commenced with her artist name “Sanshinista” in January 2019. With her Sanshin passed over from her grandfather and aunt, she seeks to share the fun and spread Okinawa's beautiful culture with OIST students. “Although my base is Ryukyu classical music, I always want to be open to new ways share the tradition, not just stick with preservation. I will be so happy if I can bring joy to many people through my work.”
