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.
