- Musical interests:
- I have grown up in the countryside of Switzerland and Japan and was naturally exposed to the local musical culture of celebrating seasons. That's how I got interested in becoming part of these traditions and in learning the dances, drum rhythms and songs. Where ever I stay, I meet local artists to learn their traditional repertoire. At an early age, I learned to play the guitar from my mother. Later, I learned DJing, playing analogue synthesizers, the japanese drums and the jazz drumkit.
As an instrumentalist and performer who is specialized on improvisation, I am involved since 1999 in different musical projects which bring together elements like live music, rap, dance or live painting and which were brought to festivals and to the stage. Since 2016, I am leading the tr'ensemble training in Basel (traditional ethnic musical/dance art forms which include drumming, flutes and singing). My artist name is King Emir. My tribal dance music DJing collective is called De La Tribu.
Music is for me a complex language used by human beings to communicate with each other. To create something in groups appeals to me because out of this arise moods, forms and elements which can arise only in this particular constellation.
tr'ensemble – Trommeln, Flöten und Tanz aus aller Welt
Das visuell und musikalisch ansprechende, sportliche Training mit Trommeln und Flöten, das vom Geist der Gruppe lebt, ist jedes Mal eine Reise in andere Kultursphären und noch unbekannte Rhythmen, Melodien und Körperbewegungen.
- While working as a child educator, I realized that the accessibility and the quality of living spaces are predefined by planning processes. That's how I took the decision to switch to the profession of developping the space in order to create a sustainable future for everybody, together with the different stakeholders. I pursue this activity with vigor in a progressive Swiss company that is organized collectively.

Since I have grown up in Japan and Switzerland in the countryside, I was naturally exposed to preparing tasty stuff with seasonal regional products, to conserve them, to drinking green tea and its culture. With my partner coming from Korea, I traveled to South Korea and met local people who are farmers, producers and sellers of Korean green tea at the same time. We learned about Korean green tea and brought preciously cared, harvested and produced green tea directly from them.
