Kenichi Tamura is a composer, artist and guitarist. He was born in Tokyo, Japan. His songs are instrumental music. The songs has the beat of Flamenco style on basic and there are some spice of other genres (Rock, Jazz, J-pop, Latin... etc). Then this style can be said "Urban Flamenco".
Especially he has many followers in Mexico via internet radio, then already he completed 3 tours in Mexico for promotion of his album. One of local media said that “Siendo un apasionado de la cultura mexicana, Kenichi contiene un repertorio de música en español inspirado en sus anteriores visitas por México. (The Trend, Torreon, Mexico)”. Now he is doing negotiation with mexican agency to distribute of his album physical.
Originally, he is interested in making new styles that nobody has done. However it is difficult to accept it by Japanese people who likes classic style. So he was looking for the opportunities to promote it at other country, then he has accumulated small achievements little by little.
