In harmony

MUSIC, they say, knows no boundaries. And so with Kina Shokichi, who strings his way across the globe, spreading the message of peace and love. Shokichi, in his native country Japan, is one of the best known rock stars. Having grown up in Okinawa, a place that was under American occupation, Shokichi is a firm believer that if one were to look for peace then one would find it. Shokichi created his first pop song at the age of 13. His band called "Champloose" means a blend of sounds. In the Capital recently to mark the 50th year of Indo-Japanese diplomatic relations, Shokichi said he loved to perform for Indian audiences.
