Wong WingTsan, called "The Pianist in Meditation", is the leading figure in Japan's New Age Music scene. Born in Kobe in 1949 and raised in Tokyo, he started his professional career as a musician at the age of nineteen playing Jazz, Soul and Modern Music. A meditative experience in 1987 led to his discovery of the music in him, prompting him to set up Satowa Music in 1992. He has since released almost 30 CDs from his label, each album a long-seller. He also wrote the theme music for "Kokoro no Jidai" on NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation, Japan's only public broadcaster) Educational TV, "Nippon Kikou" and "Mokugeki! Nippon" on NHK General TV. His solo piano interlaced with soulful improvisations is what makes his piano unique. You could feel the essence of clear and beautiful piano music of Wong WingTsan.
