Featured auto play video By: Hiroshima

Formed by Dan Kuramoto and June Kuramoto (the only Japan native in the band, and one of the world's leading koto players), Hiroshima became a thriving and pioneering instrumental ensemble with the addition of master taiko drummer Johnny Mori and drummer/percussionist Danny Yamamoto. Hiroshima became popular in the smooth jazz community upon the release of its 1985 album Another Place, which spawned the crossover hit "One Wish." Ancient instruments native to Asian cultures influenced the bands fusion sound, many refer to as Smooth Jazz. The koto is a traditional Japanese instrument that came to Japan from China around 700 AD. It is a soft, porous wood that gives the deep, warm sound, like a harp. Japanese taiko drums are used in both Japanese folk and classical musical traditions.

Hiroshima-One Wish

Hiroshima has borrowed from numerous cultures - Asian, Latin American, African American and more - and merged these influences into a unique and innovative whole that is solely their own. The result is a brand of music that speaks to nearly every aspect of contemporary culture. For more info on past and current members click here

Peace & Blessings Family -

I am a Poet/Spoken Word Expressionist in the DC area - The recipe of me consists of many influences - and they come together through my pen and pad, and they come out on stage.
I am looking to collaborate with other like minded artists to create deeper manifestations of our gifts!

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
