Koteki Band Form Baton

It was more than 50 years ago, the year Showa-36, 1961, that Koteki Band was born, three years left until the first Olympic Games in Asia would be held in Tokyo. It didn’t go just as preparing a small number of musical instruments, a strong desire among us for anyone to be able to play music with just one recorder.
The Koteki Band was aiming to grow young people to be spiritually healthy through playing music, and in parallel, we have been keeping in mind to forge our spirit and body, always watch what we are, not focussing on the competitions but going along with other people, and free from being shown.
Our activities have been spread out to various kinds of events led by central and local government, sports, and TVs in both domestic and overseas. In the year 2004 the Koteki Band was certificated as Nonprofit Organization "Zen Nihon Koteki Band Form Baton Association".
