Born in 1975. Kenya has been performing as musician since 2002, playing hang drum and Darbuka(golbet drum) at festivals, concerts, art-related projects, and his own artistic praxis. His musical concept "building an invisible architecture by using sound" rooted his background as architect. Performance as process of construction, deconstruction arrives when the performance ends. Fragments of an event remain in the mind of listeners, and those materials disperse as they leave the event place. "s"- meaning of a musical rest in Arabic and moments play an important roll in his music. His thought "Sound Architecture" ranges sounds, architectural structure and process, which reaches space of time and beyond. Currently, he is a member of an Arabic percussion group, teaching Darbuka in several prefectures in Japan, an art directer/manager of the cultural-art complex "Tomaru-Building" in Kagoshima, Japan. He creates the new communication space where people can encounter various forms of Art.
Tsuru0jackson Formed in 2016. A musical unit of Kenya Kinoshita and atom. Sound and wave motion, resonate inside. Rhythms, spread outward and be together. We want to enjoy every event that happens to us and others. We are appearing all over Japan. The unit name comes from when we accidentally heard the Turkish word for cat scratching in a conversation. "Tsurumaru-Jackson" is the sound we simply heard, and the sound was like playing Darbuka(golbet drum) for us.
