Yasuo Sueyoshi is one of the leading composers who represents the establishment of the Japanese contemporary music. He is known for his compositions for voice, flute, and percussion, which he finds the connection to Japanese traditional music through those instruments. His inspiration for writing music always comes from his personal relationship with the artists that he works with and also with children as he directed several educational broadcast programs at NHK radio and TV. Mr. Sueyoshi is a graduate of the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music, and the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris.
