DANROK - the best and greatest guitar Sextet from Japan from the Niibori Guitar Academy uses guitars of different sizes (from Soprano, Prime, Bass to Guitarron) that range over 5 octaves.
Individually, each member is professional musicians and educators in their respective field. Their repertoire ranges from Classic to Latin to Rock, etc. Beside playing and exploring the tonal qualities of the instruments, they also employed the percussive sound of the guitar using the method of NRM (Niibori Rhythm Method).
The debut of their first cd (First Impression) was well received by the public which leads them to the 2nd production entitled "Rock of Mozart". A total new twist to the tradition of music.
Beside performing all over Japan and Asia, they have been invited to play in Europe as well. In 2014, Danrok was invited to play in Poland (17th Toshensanational Guitar Festival) of which they received many thunderous standing ovation.
