Vibrant, eclectic and truly original, the multi-Grammy-nominated Hiroshima creates a musical world all its own. The intoxicating mix of traditional Japanese folk music and instruments interwoven with jazz, R&B, salsa and more has been a pioneering voice in contemporary music since the 1970s. After more than 30 years and 4 million records sold worldwide, they continue to make their unique mix of East meets West their signature sound.

The Los Angeles-based ensemble is led by Dan Kuramoto (woodwinds, producer/composer) and features koto virtuoso June Kuramoto, Kimo Cornwell (piano/ keyboards/composer, formerly with Al Jarreau and Maze), Danny Yamamoto (drums/percussion, original member), and Dean Cortez (bass, formerly with Boz Scaggs).
