Moshi Moshi !
Beware…Beware….The Rev brings you …Bob kojima !!!
Hawai'ian and exotica artists, such as Gene Rains, Arthur Lyman, and Martin Denny, hired Japanese musicians (some playing samisen and other traditional instruments), covered Japanese standards, and composed their own impressions.
Progressive records from Japan offered amazing glimpses into the rapid transformation of Japan into a modern, more global society.
And Latin music had an enormous impact on Japanese music, as in the U.S.
and here's the best example with Bob Kojima - Moshi Moshi (1960). Enjoy.
