Ayumu Harada


Ayumu Harada is a spark of genius that has set afire! This bright young spirited kid is a prodigy with a sense of humor to match. The very moment Ayumu shared the first of his ideas to the world, he had our heads spinning and our eyes forgetting to blink.

He’s got the expertise of a world-class player with the carefree love, excitement, and energy of, well, the teenage kid that he is! With his performances, Ayumu makes the stage look like a second home; he’s so relaxed while simultaneously being fully tuned in to his star player. It’s just amazing to have such a talent and extraordinary personality here with us at the Lodge.
