Hailing from Osaka, Japan, Yoko was born to sing salsa. Yoko’s singing career began at the age of fifteen when she fronted a local rock band in Osaka. The salsera’s voice resounds over the speakers, dynamic and powerful, leading the band into a smooth salsa beat. Her rich voice sweeps you off your feet, but when you realize that this fantastic sound emanates from a petite Japanese woman, you are just blown away! While attending the Kyoto University of Foreign Language, Yoko majored in Spanish language studies, which provided her with an excellent foundation in Spanish. Around the same time, Yoko discovered the music of salsa and she was immediately hooked. She wanted to learn more about the musical genre of salsa, but she was unsure if it even existed in Japan. Now, Yoko is touring all over the world, and making her New York debut at the legendary SOB's.
