Hiroshima is a celebrated ensemble that fuses jazz, pop and rock with traditional Japanese folk music and instruments. The group has been nominated for two Grammy Awards: in 1980 for the song “Winds of Change” and in 2009 for their album Legacy.

Hiroshima takes its name from the Japanese city that sustained a nuclear blast during World War II, yet rose phoenix-like from its own ashes. The group’s inspiration comes from Duke Ellington who proclaimed the importance of Asian influences on jazz in his 1971
album The Afro Eurasian Eclipse. Its six performers are all based in
Los Angeles.
