Interoceanico 3

Interoceaico means inter-oceanic. Interoceaico 3 is a unique blend of three musicians from Japan and Argentina.The group was formed in Boston, MA 2002 by a composer and guitarist, Hiroya Tsukamoto from Kyoto, Japan. They have performed many concerts throughout the Boston and New York area including several appearances at The Berklee Performance Center(Boston, MA), Ryles Jazz Club(Cambridge, MA) and Satalla (New York, NY). They had successful tours to Japan( November 2004) and Korea/Japan (August 2005).

They are a musical ensemble different than most of their contemporaries. Interoceanico's music is a cornucopia of lush harmonies, lyrical melodies, driving rhythms and the first class arrangements that form their original music. They combine elements of South American folklore, contemporary fusion, jazz and pop music to create an overall sound that is appealing to both non-musicians and musicians. The architecture of their music is shaped by the variety of diverse influences and backgrounds.

Hiroya Tsukamoto is a one of a kind composer and guitarist. He began his musical career playing the five-string banjo when he was thirteen, and took up the guitar shortly after. Influenced by many songwriters like Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Niel Young and James Taylor, he started to compose songs in the genre while attending high school in his native Kyoto, Japan.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
