“Kuricorder & Friends” is formed by Kuricorder Quartet, Beautiful Hummingbird and Chiku Toshiaki.
Kuricorder Quartet is well known as a recorder ensembles group. They play various recorders, and other music instruments like Melodica, Saxophone, Tuba, Ukulele, Jew’s harp and percussion. They are well-known by the theme music of famous Japanese TV program “PythagoraSwitch” (NHK). Using various instruments, they create comfortable sound.
They started the music exchange program “Kuricorder & Friends” in Southeast Asia in 2015. This is the third time they play in Vietnam after 2013 and 2016. As a special guest, we invite Ms. Ngo Tra My, one of the most famous Dan Bau (Vietnamese monochord zither) player in Vietnam this time.
