I’m a one of the pioneer artists of cutting-edge keyboard instruments in the world. Especially I’m
one of a very few players of 5D Touch Keyboard ‘Seaboard‘, which came on the musical movie
‘LA LA LAND‘ and surprised people around the world.
I make music from a piano solo to a 100-piece orchestra (One Man Orchestra) on several
electronic keyboard instruments with both hands, both feet and right knee at one time. Moreover
I create and perform Japanese-soul Music of my own (called ‘WAKON Music’), which grafts
Japanese traditional sounds & rhythms on various kinds of music around the world -- Classical
music, Jazz, Rock, Pops (include animation music like Ghibli works ), Chanson and World
Especially my own concerts in historical structures like Japan Heritage sites, shrines and
temples, historical parks, and in the middle of Nature have captured audiences so much. And
people often say “YUSUKE YABUI in Kimono & Hakama (formal Japanese attire of a man)
looks like a SAMURAI” I’ll provide the One and Only Entertainment which moves people
around the world with Japanese-soul music on the cutting-edge keyboard Instruments.
