Thanks Mrs. B.
I didn't know the band Heroshima is American.
They have an eclectic and original style that is nice to listen to.
I have a couple of DVD's from them.
I own half a dozen or so of their cds.
Hiroshima is an American jazz fusion/smooth jazz/Asian-American jazz band formed in 1974 by Sansei Japanese American Dan Kuramoto (wind instruments and band leader), Peter Hata (guitar), June Kuramoto (koto), Johnny Mori (percussion and taiko), Dave Iwataki (keyboards) and Danny Yamamoto (drums). Named for the Japanese city of Hiroshima, the band is best known for the fusing of Japanese music and other forms of world music into its playing. Its early jazz-pop R&B Funk sound gave the group a huge following among the African American community and they are regarded as musical pioneers among the Asian American and Japanese American community.
Hiroshima's debut album in 1979, the self-titled Hiroshima, contained the single "Roomful of Mirrors," which caught the ear of the "easy-listening" community.
Hiroshima became popular in the New Adult Contemporary community upon the release of its 1985 album Another Place, which spawned the crossover hit "One Wish".
I used to have a three string instrument that I thought was called an Ehru. I gave it to someone because I'm tone deaf and never learned how to play it.
A friend of mine had a didgeridoo that I picked up and was able to play quickly. It wasn't music, but I quickly got the knack of it.
Xavier Rudd is a great musician.
here are some great up beat Jazz bands in Japan. "The Thrill" is one.
The "contemporary Jazz" Saxophone of Kaori Kobayashi seems unoriginal me. It's easing listening - like music for a department store.
Hiroshima is original and has longevity. They've been around for decades.
I thought the band Hiroshima is from Japan.
Here's a link to bamboo flute 'Zen' mucic you may enjoy.

It would be a good recording to fall asleep by.
I often wonder how reed, and horn instruments were developed over time. When I was a kid I could make sounds 'music' with a piece of grass between my thumbs.
