“Daha-za” (Pounding Waves Group) was founded in 2018 as a desire to have a group of musicians who play Japanese instruments. The mindset of being open and fostering a relationship with Japan is very important in this group. A gathering of like-minded musicians in Alcvin Ryuzen Ramos, Anny Lin, John Nguyen, and Nori Akagi and Dahaza was born. “Daha” (Pounding Waves) is the title of a famous classical shakuhachi meditation piece which is a metaphor for breaking through one’s obstacles in life to reach success, happiness, and ultimately enlightenment.
