Bio / info
Kenso is a Japanese band founded in the late 70s by guitarist Yoshihisa Shimizu, who has worked with a number of different musicians over the decades of the band's existence, usually including two keyboardists, bass, and drums. Their style encompasses elements of both symphonic progressive rock and jazz fusion, with some aspects of the Canterbury sound as well, and has been almost completely instrumental in nature.
