Rin’ is an instrumental group consisting of 2003 graduates from Tokyo Nationa University of Fine Arts. They are known to combine traditional Japanese musical instruments (Koto, Jushichi-gen, Biwa, Sangen, and Shakuhachi) with modern, pop-like musical elements, creating a unique traditional music & culture like never before. They were signed onto Avex.
Their unit name comes from the English word ‘Ring' , the Japanese word ‘Wa’ (meaning ‘Ring’ and ‘Japanese-style‘), and their aspiration to create a ‘Ring’ (in other words, ‘Circle’) of music.
As of February 2009, the group has disbanded.
