Harry Hosono Tribute By Jaba Shavishvili [09.07.2020]

Haruomi Hosono is widely regarded as one of the most important figures of Japanese popular music over the past 50 years.
By the mid-’70s, over a string of albums, he was combining the sounds of New Orleans, Hawaii, Okinawa, the Caribbean and more into music dubbed “tropical” and “exotica.”
In 1978, together with two other musicians on his later albums of this period, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Yukihiro Takahashi, Hosono formed the technopop trio Yellow Magic Orchestra,that became Japan’s most popular band over several years and is still one of the country’s biggest musical exports, influencing electronic music acts around the world.
During the 1980s and much of the ’90s, he was at the forefront of the ambient electronic music scene, also started experimenting with sounds of the music, that was dubbed as “electro” later.
He accomplished all this while penning hundreds of songs for Japanese pop stars, creating at least three record labels, not to mention being a prolific session musician, producer, mixer, arranger and being part of numerous other projects, broadly defined as belonging to the “Hosono family.”
