Hiroshima

Hiroshima, a group whose music falls between R&B, pop, world music, and jazz, has long had its own niche. The band integrates traditional Japanese instruments into their musical blend and has generally been both commercial and creative within its genre. Hiroshima's founding members are keyboardist Dan Kuramoto (who also played shakuhachi), June Okida Kuramoto on koto (a key part of the group's sound), Johnny Mori on taiko drums, and Danny Yamamoto on drums, percussion, and taiko. Other additions include keyboardist Kimo Cornwell, bassist Dean Cortez, and singer Teri Koide (who was later succeeded by Kimaya Seward). Some of the musicians were descendants of Japanese Americans held in U.S. detention camps during World War II. Beginning with the band's self-titled 1979 debut, Hiroshima has recorded a series of best-selling albums for Arista, Epic, and Qwest, and although they have evolved over time (moving further away from jazz), they have managed to not only retain but increase their popularity. Since 2000, the band has released a handful of albums including The Bridge in 2003, Spirit of the Season in 2004, Obon in 2005, and Little Tokyo in 2007. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

All I can type is WOW!!!! I love them and the music. Just saw Hiroshima at a Jazz festival in Catalina. I enjoyed it so much brought tears to my eyes. I had it all......The man I love, good food, romantic setting and the afternoon with Hiroshima.,. . . . .
I remember seeing Hiroshima in New York a few years ago overseeing the water on a beautiful summer night. It was awesome. Talented group!

Refreshing!

I've been listening to Hiroshima since 1979 when I got hooked on Da-Da and I'm amazed at how they still sound so good! My Japanese mother even liked them and used to ask me to play their music all the time before she passed away.
Wow, this group has evolved and continued to be a force to be reckoned with! They are truly amazing and have pretty much been true to their style and way of playing some really wonderful music! I love this lp!!
Love it

They are from Gardena, Ca. great group. My blind date took me to see Hiroshima and Jeff Lorber on Sept. 26, 1986 at the Greek Theatre, in L.A . front row seats. She later became my wife....and remains so today.
Never had the chance to see them in person, but have lots of their music, so in my head....we'v e been in the same space. My all time favorite, and that is a difficult choice, but it would be Da-Da, the one that made me fall in love with Hiroshima.

MUSIC FOR THE NEXT BOND FILM. FRANK VOLPE,f.r.c.
i love thier sounds, so intriuging
This to me is the most PARAMOUNT group I have ever had the oppertunity to hear, If it were not for the music of HIROSHIMA I would never have made it through DESERT STORM.... Thank you for being who you are after all these years.
