Japan Update




In search for a new performance for your event? 

We would like to introduce a very unique & spiritual performance group, “NAM JAZZ EXPERIMENT”. This group’s base concept is "Jazz meets Sutra chanting" which is an amazing innovation to introduce Japanese Buddhism.  

The lead vocal is the head priest of a very famous Temple called “Myojoji Temple” in Kanagawa Prefecture which has been passed down for 34 generations. 

On November 26, 2016, an annual event "JAZZ Zanmai", jazz live at the Myojoji Temple, the group had their first jam session. The session was broadcasted and received a huge response on Twitter & Facebook. Beyond language and culture, this video has been viewed diversely such as Taiwan, China, Thailand, and finally Europe.
