Still working on that hot first release.



Chihiro Yamazaki (tp) started a band with Satoshi Yamashita (dr), Koji Yamamoto (Ba), Hana Takami (Key) in summer 2010. 

Their unique sound witch is called "Singing Instruments" based on Instrumental Pop came from many different back grounds such as jazz, fusion, classical and rock. 

They performed around Los Angeles only after half year from their establishment and sold all the tickets.
