Sadahiro Kakitani was born on March 27th, 1980 in Japan, and studied western flute as a child. He began his study of ryuteki and gagaku in high school and continued at Tenri University, Nara, Japan. After graduating from university, he studied ryuteki and zazen meditation with Buddhist priest Yoshiatsu Terakawa. He has performed in Japan, Korea, China, Russia, Ukraine,France,Germany,England, America,India, Singapore, and Australia.

Sadahiro has been teaching ryuteki in the traditional style in Japan since 2000 and New York since 2009. The New York Times described his solo ryuteki performance of Fire Water Wind as possessing “a coloristic range and an almost frightening vehemence." His original composition for solo ryuteki Five Elements debuted in October 2010, accompanied by modern dance. He has collaborated with Mami Okada on violin, Masataka Odaka on bass, Tomoko Sugawara on kugo harp, Peiyou Chang on guqin and Yuki Nishiyama, modern dance.

Sadahiro wishes to convey the beauty of the natural bamboo sound of ryuteki in all over the world. The sound of the ryuteki is said to be the call of the dragon flying between the heavens and the earth. Gagaku music reflects the order and harmony of the universe and Sadahiro expresses this harmonious world through the ancient ryuteki, one of the instruments of Gagaku music.
