Geinoh Yamashirogumi

Geinoh Yamashirogumi is a musical collective led by Japanese artist and scientist Tsutomu Ohashi that employs people from all walks of life to recreate folk music from nations around the world and a synthesised blend of assorted traditional musical forms. They have recorded several albums but are known best for the soundtrack to Katsuhiro Otomo's 1988 animated science-fiction film 'Akira'.

Ohashi, who sometimes goes by the name Shoji Yamashiro, is a composer, conductor and producer as well as a scientist. His technique with the collective involves synthesisers, found sounds and traditional percussion instruments on a variety of classical, spiritual and rock music from various countries. Albums include 'Selections from Folk Music On Silkroad' (1981) and 'Selections from African Folk Music' (1982). A DVD of the making of 'Akira' titled 'Akira Sound Clip' came out in 1991 and compilation release 'Nyumon' was released in 1994.
