The Yamatogaku musical form was created in 1933 by Baron Okura Kishichiro, who, as founder of the Okura Hotel in Tokyo, was a well known and successful businessman.

Yamatogaku melodies incorporate Western vocalization techniques including harmony, singing in round, and humming. Japanese instrumentation combines with these vocal techniques to create a free form music of great emotion and depth.

Yamatogaku school’s the third headmaster Yamato Ohsho will visit Los Angeles from June 4 – 8, teach individuals and groups on June 5 and 6 in Torrance,  and invitation only lunch meeting with members of the Yamatogaku U.S.A. which was established in 2007.
