Jazz and other musicians are taking advantage of the recording facilities offered in the country, Ryo Kawasaki among them. He collaborates with three of Estonia's leading jazz artists, Toivo Unt on bass, Aivar Vassiljev on drums, and Kristi Keel on English horn on Reval, the ancient name for Estonia. This is an especially intimate session because it's live in the studio with all musicians present and playing. Kawasaki's guitar is like a chameleon, changing tone and texture, from electric to acoustic, to fit the music.

His album Ryo Kawasaki & the Golden Dragon Live was among the first wave of all-digital recordings. She encouraged him to participate in music from the age of three and it was instrumental, but not in the manner she perceived. In 2005, Kawasaki formed Art of Trio with American drummer Brian Melvin and Estonian bassist Toivo Unt; they toured Europe with Estonian vocalist Jaanika Ventsel. The guitarist then recorded a pair of duo albums with Japanese bassist Yoshio "Chin" Suzuki in 2007 and 2009, entitled Agana and Late Night Willie, respectively. Beginning in 2009, Kawasaki spent much of the next two years working in Lebanon with various musicians.
