Wada has worked with artists in various musical genres, while also helping direct and produce accompaniments.

Koto player Maruta plays a wide range of different music, from classical to contemporary.

The concert is scheduled for 8pm on November 19 and 20 at Hong Ha Theatre, 51 Duong Thanh Street, Hoan Kiem District.
