Chicago native Glenn Horiuchi seems to have been destined for a life of music, as he grew up singing and hearing Japanese folk songs. It was this weaving of music and politics which would color almost all of his compositions. In 1987, Horiuchi met Edna Ikeda, who was the love of his life. They were married and settled in San Diego. They continued their activism and Horiuchi became more deeply involved with his music. Fair Play, Horiuchi, Soul Note 121328, 1999. Elegy for Sarajevo, Asian Improv AIR-0035, 1999.
