On the eve of his 60th birthday, Kamau, the son of the country’s most famous violinist, was honored by the Japan Academy of Music for his work in the field of music video, which he has done for more than 70 years.
The video, titled “Instrumental Music,” shows Kamau playing the violin with his father, who died in 2012.
He plays a variety of instruments, from his signature violin, to his son’s violin, and even the violin he plays at home, which was purchased in 2009 by his parents after he was born.
He’s also seen playing the instrument at a family gathering, and at a concert in Japan.
“When I see a video like this, I think, ‘Why are you not more involved in this?'”
“I think that’s a problem that I want to solve.”
The music video was shot over the course of two years in Tokyo.
The video features the violinist playing with his parents, wife and three children.
The youngest son, Kamui, is six.
His father is known for his classical music, including his work on the violin, cello and viola.
“I think I’m a bit too quiet in the video,” Kamau told ABC News.
“Sometimes, I’m too serious.
I don’t want to do that.”
The father-son duo also shared the stage with a few of the violinists who are playing on the video.
Kamau played the violin in the premiere for the video and then joined in the second half of the video, playing with some of the soloists who have worked with Kamau.
“He has a very strong personality,” Kamui said.
But the biggest challenge for Kamau was not being able to get a video made for the award, because his father’s death had already made it impossible for him to work on music videos for the past decade.
The violinist was diagnosed with cancer in 2007.
“My father was an amazing musician,” Kamukau said, “but I’m not a good violinist.”
Kamau hopes to work with other violins, and has asked his son to be involved in another video he has been working on with his partner, Masahiro Nakamoto, who also plays the violin.
The duo is working on the next video, and hopes to release it in January.
“It’s a big challenge, but I’m hopeful that we can overcome it,” Kamue said.
The father-daughter duo hopes to be able to share their work in 2017.
“We are not in a place yet where we can do that,” Kamu said.

A video from the ceremony will be shown on TV and online on April 30.
