Asa-Chang & Junray

Asa Chang & Junray is the band of the Japanese percussionist Hirokazu Asakura (Asa-Chang), who was the founder and original bandmaster of Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra. After leaving that group in 1993, he formed Asa Chang & Junray in 1998 with programmer and guitarist Hidehiko Urayama. They were joined in 2000 by tabla player Hironori Yuzawa (U-Zhaan). Live, the group use a portable soundsystem called 'Jun-Ray Tronics', hence the name — although the word 'junray' also means 'pilgrimage'.
