Artist: Hiroki Okano Album: Return To The Soul Release Date: September 2, 2016
By fusing together sounds of nature and a variety of international folk instruments, Hiroki Okano renders a feeling of awe and appreciation of nature based on his own Japanese sensibility.

He has also performed at other large-scale international events such as Rainbow 2000, The Fuji Rock Festival, and The Glastonbury Festival UK through a collaboration with the late Dave Goodman, a former producer for the Sex Pistols, where he has now performed for more than ten years.
