Noriko Yamamoto is a japanese vocalist, guitarist and composer who plays mainly bossa nova in portuguese. Her smoky voice spreads in the air and fascinates the audience. http://www.noriko-yamamoto.com/ http://www.myspace.com/norikoyamamoto Born and raised in Takarazuka, a small town bitween Osaka and Kobe. She began learning piano at the age of 5. Since she entered a junior high school, she began to recite the domestic and the American popular songs by her own accompaniment.

She sang at home every day. At age of 19 Noriko entered Kobe University to study Architecture. There she met the female guitarist Marimo Sugahara. To the end time of the 1980s, Noriko began to sing the songs Marimo wrote, which were influenced by old american music, blues, and Rock. Noriko came to appear on a bar in Osaka and sang by accompaniment of Marimo. Noriko's interest moved to Latin musics gradually.

She listened to various styles of music as: salsa, meringue, borelo, tango argentino, folk musics in Peru and fado in Portugal. Finally she met bossa nova and became absorbed in the Brazilian music. In 1995 Noriko moved to Tokyo and then began her activities of singing bossa nova, samba and MPB (Brazilian Popular Music) in portuguese. In 1997 she went on to the School of Yoshiro Nakamura, who is a master of bossa nova in Japan. There she played the guitar for the first time and fell in love with the delicate tone of strings. A year later she began to sing by own accompaniment of guitar on stage. In 2002 Noriko recorded her first album "CALOR" produced by Masakazu Uehata.

Nevertheless it was published by independence work, it is superior in quality and expresses the essence of Bossa Nova faithfully. It contains 5 songs wrote by her in portuguese. In this album, her smoky voice spreads in the air and would fascinate the audience so much. In May 2004 her second album "ANEL DE CAPIM" (THE RING OF GRASS) was released. The title song "Anel de Capim" is a very impressive tune.

With this work she came to be known as a talented songwrighter. In March 2006, "BITTER SWEET" was released. Different to the current works, she plays the pop songs of America and U.K. like The Eagles, Prince, Paul Weller and so on. She was challenged to sing in English and to interpret these tunes in her way of bossa nova.

This work was successfully praised by a lot of listeners. Official Site: http://www.noriko-yamamoto.com/ Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
