Oriha Kato / Eiji Sakuma | Flamenco dancer, choreographer / Guitarist

Born in Aichi, Japan, Oriha Kato studied ballet and rhythmic gymnastics at an early age and met flamenco. In order to devote more to flamenco, she mastered north Indian classical dance Cuttack, which is said to be its origin. Now she dances from the classics to new trends with her unique beauty. She has been invited to perform in France, the Netherlands, China, Korea as well as in Japan. She won the second prize at the Dance Grand Prix Europe in ITALY in 2012, the Nagoya City Art Encouragement Prize in 2018, and the Special Prize in the Dance Division at the Nagoya Citizen’s Art Festival in 2021.
Eiji Sakuma started playing the guitar at 16, and after playing in a band and doing pilgrimage through Japan, he entered the Koyo Music Academy. He later switched to flamenco guitar and has been performing mainly in Nagoya with his impressive sound. His first album is “MANA” (2014).
The two have been presenting works together since 2015.
