We’re not sure what the internet was saying when it called deaf pianistic pianist Momo Kodama the “World’s Greatest Blind Pianoist”.
But we’re pretty sure it was not saying that he was the greatest pianist alive.
The man known as “the Piano Master of Japan” is not only the world’s most famous pianist; he’s also one of the most recognizable.
Kodama is known for his incredible playing style and for being the only deaf pianism to ever be awarded the prestigious Gold Medal at the 2008 Grammy Awards.
We’re not surprised to hear that Kodama was named a Greatest Blind pianist because he is a genius at what he does.
A musician born in Tokyo in 1921, Kodama grew up in a family of musicians who also had disabilities, including a severe form of cerebral palsy, a condition that left him with no voice and made it hard for him to communicate.
His music was very distinctive and very powerful.
He was the first deaf pianos to win the Nobel Prize in 1985.
He is also one the only blind pianists to ever win an international grand piano competition.
We’ve all heard the term “blackface” used to describe a musician who has lost his voice, but the real thing is that a blackface artist does not change his face.
If you listen closely, you can hear a slight change in the voice, though the effect is subtle.
In fact, Kodamas musical talent is so great that his songs are considered classics.
He became a major figure in Japan’s pop music scene, including for his work with popular singer Mio Shikata.
He has won many awards for his music, including the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999, a lifetime achievement award from the Japan Philharmonic in 2000, the Nobel Foundation for the Arts Lifetime Achievement Award in 2004, and a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award in 2008.
In 2012, Kodumas most famous song was “Love’s Garden”, a tribute to his parents.
The song became a hit worldwide, and was used in many of Kodama’s commercials, commercials for Kodama products, and even in his film, “Swan.”
In 2017, Kodamas first movie, “Kodama’s World”, was released and has since become a cult classic.
His other famous songs include “Hakuna Matata” and “Sai no Chikashi”, and he has been credited with inventing the “karaoke style” of Japanese pop music.
Kodamas song “The Piano” has become a worldwide anthem for Japanese people who are disabled.
His songs have also been used in a number of commercials and music videos, including his popular hit “Love Myself”.
We’re happy to say that we have Kodama at our doorstep.
His birthday is on June 22, so we’re hoping to find a way to invite him to our home.
If not, we’ll have to do it by phone or in person.
We’ll also try to arrange for him and his wife, Tetsuya, to come to our house to celebrate his birthday.
