Meet Goh Kurosawa of in Highland Park

Today we’d like to introduce you to Goh Kurosawa.

Goh – can you kick things off for us, how did this story start?
I started touring internationally in 2005 when I was booked for the International Guitar Festival in Zihuatanejo in Mexico. Since then, I have been a frequent headliner there, as well as different parts of the globe including Taiwan, Brazil, France, Canada, Myanmar, and Japan. This year I am going to Cuba to perform in conjunction with an event that is supported by the Japanese embassy in Havana.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? 
Wedding celebrations, dive bars & wine bars, graduation ceremonies, senior retirement homes, schools, the forest, the street, and all spaces where music resonate continue to be a part of his itinerary. In a way, it has been quite a smooth ride.

We’d love to hear more about what you do.
People call me the BICULTURAL MUSIC SAMURAI. Residing in Los Angeles and traveling the world from Japan, I am a guitarist armed with fresh, original songs, electrifying soundscapes, and stunning arrangements of familiar global melodies.

Having performed in a wide range of settings and festivals (for music, art, movement, schools, community centers, and public libraries), I perform in Japan annually, produce Brilliant Strings (live music & live watercolors) in Los Angeles, conducts workshops/seminars at universities and schools regularly, and frequents the Pacific Northwest. (Seattle and Portland areas)
