HAYATO (piano) and HIRO (cajon) formed →Pia-no-jaC← in April 2005, and they specialize in instrumental music just as the duo's name suggests. The name is a combination of "piano" and "cajon", with the latter spelt backwards from the right.

Self-taught musically, the simple unit of only keyboards and percussion has crisp and energetic sounds, blending oriental flavors with Japanese spirits. The word "hybrid" best describes their music. Needless to say their live shows are the most striking, where technique, sound and performance are all highlighted at once.

It's neither jazz nor classical. "Hybrid Instrumental" is the word, a totally new type of music. Their one and only sound, backed by their strength of simple instrumental style going far beyond language and their inimitably unique live performances and vibrations, is clearly distinctive from others

Expanding their live activities as far as Tokyo in recent years, one should not forget their headliner show at Osaka, which was an immediate sellout. With a massive sales score of 2500 CDs yearly, sold exclusively at live →Pia-no-jaC← shows, they have attained the 6000 copies mark so far. They are already becoming quite a sensation in the show business.
