It’s time. Emerging from the surreal events of last year, Hiroshima embarks on its 40th Anniversary Tour armed with renewed vision and their first new music CD in 8 years, the “2020” Project.
One of the most unique and engaging American bands, Hiroshima brings its one-of-a-kind mix of Jazz, R&B, Salsa and Eastern sounds, with a diverse program of songs from its over 20 CD’s, including global hits like “One Wish” and “ Thousand Cranes,” with new and inspired music from the “2020” Project. Both early release singles charted solidly in the top 20 of Billboard Jazz Charts with “GrooveLatino” residing in the #2 spot for over 6 weeks.
The double Grammy nominated ensemble features the extraordinary June Kuramoto on koto (“The world’s greatest koto player” - Stanley Clarke), leader/producer Dan Kuramoto on winds/shakuhachi, Hawaiian Kimo Cornwell (Al Jarreau/Maze/Kalapana) keyboards, Dean Cortez (Boz Skaggs/Caldera/Willie Bobo) bass, and super drummer Land Richards (Hubert Laws/Gladys Knight/ Earth Wind and Fire/Stevie Wonder/Sonny Stitt).
Hiroshima is about diversity. It’s an exploration and celebration of cultures, music, art and the heart. “America’s greatest asset is our multiplicity—our cultural richness,” says Dan Kuramoto. “We try and embrace it, and the joy in our differences.” When Hiroshima toured with Miles Davis in 1990 Miles impressed them with the notion that music is a path that is ever changing.
