Masayoshi Fujita is a vibraphone and marimba performer and composer. His work seeks out new possibilities for vibraphones and unique sounds unbound by traditional performance styles, techniques, or musicography. From 2006, he was based in Berlin but is today based in Hyogo, from where he performs in Europe and around the world. Fujita is acclaimed for his wide-ranging activities, which include performing under the name el fog and an ongoing collaboration with Jan Jelinek. He is an endorsing artist for Korogi.

Born in 1993 in Kyoto, Kanna Taniguchi graduated with a degree in percussion from Kyoto City University of Arts. Undertaking experimental performances with visual artists, performers, dancers, and others from her time in college, she has concentrated on chamber music since graduating. With a particular focus on improvised performances with artists from other fields, her wide-ranging output encompasses film and theatre. Taniguchi performed with the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra at Orchestra Project 2022. She won acclaim for her performance with Kyoto Chamber Ensemble and Mizuki Aita for the vibraphone duo recital “Flying Vibraphones.” Having previous served on the Kyoto Culture and Arts City Creation Council from April 2020 to March 2022, she is currently a member of Kyoto Chamber Ensemble, ensemble sai sai, and MargaSari Gamelan Ensemble.
Tsuyoshi Maeda developed an affinity with the traditional Japanese taiko drum as part of revitalization efforts following the Great Hanshin Earthquake, and eventually joined Kodo Taiko Performing Arts Ensemble in 2008. Over his roughly ten years with the troupe, he performed in national and international tours, appearing in a hundred shows per year. During his time at Kodo he oversaw taiko, singing, flute, koto, other musical instruments, and dance. Also a director and composer, Maeda was involved with stage directing for many productions, including special summer performances and a show for schools nationwide at the Sado Island arts festival Earth Celebration. He left Kodo in January 2017 to become a solo artist. Since then, he has harnessed his experiences of creating performances with sensitive artists to seek out a unique musicality and performance style, expanding the scope of his activities both nationally and internationally.
