Toshi Onizuka http://toshionizuka.com/
"Toshi Onizuka was born in Tokyo, Japan. At twenty years old, he began playing guitar. Inspired by the music of Al DiMeola, Paco De Lucia, and Django Reinhardt, Toshi sought to develop his own sound. Toshi realized that in order to achieve this, he would need to teach himself. He quickly became consumed with the guitar and devoted himself completely to developing his technique. In 1993 he moved to Seville, Spain where he lived for five years. Based in Seville, Toshi immersed himself in the Spanish music scene, playing with as many musicians as he could, traveling to different parts of the the country as well as Morocco. Pamela Ellgen, The Asian Reporter, says that his “fingers move like a butterfly fluttering its wings as he shows how he plays his flamenco-flavored jazz-fusion music,” Rob Cullivan of the Gresham Outlook, and that “Onizuka has found it in his way-talented heart to bless Portland with his classy, delicate playing,” Max T. Malt of the Willamette Week. Toshi’s music isn’t easily categorized and can’t be limited to a specific genre; he prefers to think of it as a truly international sound that knows no borders and has no boundaries. Toshi currently resides in Portland, Oregon where he performs nightly with local talent such as Israel Annoh, Damian Erskine, Mariano Deorbegoso, Jon Hughes, Phil Baker, Reinhardt Melz among others, at various local venues." - from Toshi's website
