Hideki Togi

Hideki TogiGagaku player

Gagaku player Hideki Togi was born in Tokyo in 1959. The Togi family has a tradition of Gagaku, ancient Japanese music performed at the Imperial court, which can be traced back to the Nara period (1,300 years ago). Due to his father's job, Hideki spent his childhood abroad and grew up surrounded by various kinds of music including rock, classical and jazz. After graduating from high school, he joined the music department of the Imperial Household Agency. His main focus there was the Japanese instrument: the Hichiriki. However, he also gained experience with the Biwa, Tsuzumi and cello, and also sang and danced. By participating not only in the ceremonies at the Imperial Palace, but also in the overseas performances, Hideki has played an important role in introducing the traditional Japanese culture both at home and abroad, and promoting international relationships. In addition, he passionately creates his own music by combining the natural flavour of Gagaku with piano and synthesizers. His discography includes "Nihon no Uta", "Sekai no Uta", "Hichiriki Café", etc.
