    rieco (Dispatched Artist, Fukuoka)

    01_☆thumnail_green_button_final_80x80.jpgHello! I am rieco, a singer songwriter. I was born and raised in Fukuoka and now perform primarily in Fukuoka and Tokyo.
    First and foremost I want to say a huge congratulations to asianbeat for their 10 year anniversary!

    After winning an audition held at Canal City in 2010 asianbeat gave me the great opportunity to perform at a big music event in Thailand. This was my wonderful encounter with asianbeat.
    It was my first gig in Thailand! I sang at an event called the “Big Mountain Music Festival” in front of over 20,000 people, it was such a fantastic experience! Since that time I have a keen interest in Asia and have gone to Korea, Taiwan and the Philippines both to perform and also for travel.

    Even though I was born and raised in Japan, in the closest city to the Asian continent, I somehow felt that Asia existed in a far-away place. asianbeat taught me, someone with that kind of mindset, about the ties that connect Asia and Japan. Thank you so much for this fantastic, life-changing present.

    From here on out, I am hoping to connect the people of Asia through music. asianbeat has given me the gift of meeting many wonderful individuals. Thank you so much!
