Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Rin'

Inland Sea

2006-05-08

Rin’ are Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, Class of 2003 graduate trio - Mana, Tomoca, and Chie - who dramatically collaborates traditional Japanese musical instruments (Koto, Jushichi-gen, Biwa, Sangen, and Shakuhachi) with modern, pop-like musical elements, creating a unique traditional music & culture like never before. Their unit name comes from the English word ‘Ring' , the Japanese word ‘Wa’ (meaning ‘Ring’ and ‘Japanese-style‘), and their aspiration to create a ‘Ring’ (in other words, ‘Circle’) of music.
