TOMO (hurdy gurdy, open tuning guitar)

Hurdy gurdy player and multi-instrumentalist. Since he attempted to play the guitar with numbers of open tuning in his early years, his interest in folk tradition and tuning systems spread to other stringed instruments including his main instrument, hurdy gurdy. In respect for the tradition, he explores the alternative style of hurdy gurdy, and creates his original compositions for the instrument.
