"A jazz percussionist and early innovator in Japanese taiko, Kenny Endo's adventurous spirit stretches the taiko genre incorporating influences like funk, jazz, Afro-Cuban & Hawaiian, with roots firmly grounded in tradition."
Kenny Endo is the first foreigner in Japan to receive a natori (stage name), which is a great honor. His playing can be heard in film soundtracks such as Picture Bride and Apocalypse Now, and he has performed for the late Michael Jackson, played with Bobby McFerrin, and opened for The Who.
