Haruomi Hosono: The Songwriters

Few Japanese artists are as prolific as Haruomi Hosono, who made a name for himself with bossa nova-tinged folk under his own name and catchy electro-pop as part of Yellow Magic Orchestra. He also drew on his eclectic sensibility to write pop songs for a wide range of Japanese acts, from idol legend Seiko Matsuda to jazz-leaning performer Akiko Yano.
