After four decades, the band Hiroshima, which will be playing Saturday at The Rose in Pasadena, is still going strong.

Hiroshima has maintained its longevity through an East-meets-West style, seamlessly incorporating an Asian sound with a silky-smooth blend of jazz, R&B, pop, rock, funk, salsa and world music. The group employs traditional Japanese instruments into its track, producing an interesting sound. Over the years, the group has released more than 20 albums and traveled the world, including a tour with jazz great Miles Davis.

Hiroshima has received several Grammy nominations and recorded multiple gold records, selling more than 4 million units worldwide. Not resting on its laurels, the band continues to produce innovative sounds.

Saturday’s performance will include a secret special guest performer.


Doors open at 6 p.m. and music starts at 7 p.m. Saturday at The Rose, 245 E. Green St., Pasadena. Tickets are $28 to $58. Call (888) 645-5006 or visit
