Once after the war, great ancestors ... Tokyo Cuban Boys The fusion of Japanese folk songs and Latin rhythms that Nochekubana tried to embrace"Folk Song Crusader's" to be reborn in the 21st century.

Fussa in 2012, when Katsumi Tanaka, a guitarist of the U.S. military house "Banana House" who lives in the town "Fussa" where Yokota Air Base is located in western Tokyo, collaborated with monophone folk song singer Freddie Tsukamoto at a bar in the neighborhood. Formed by gathering frontier music lovers in the surrounding area. Since the 1970s, he continues to hold the house sessions often seen in Fussa.

The band, which continued to try chemical reactions between various dance music such as cumbia, beginner, boogaroo, calypso, afro, rumba, reggae, and morum and the lost music "Japanese folk song", made several member changes while making several member changes. Completed the 1st album "Echoes of Japan" and received high praise from home and abroad.

It made the world aware of the existence of "folk songs".
