    East West was formed in 2005 as a blend of artists, talent, and cultures. With a unique instrumental combination, East West offers a fresh, dynamic sound that is a new take on jazz standards, traditional melodies and original compositions. Reiko Obata, of East West, is one of the leading American koto players. A native Californian, she studied under masters in the U.S. and Japan. Her music has been featured on radio and in film and live theatre, and she has recorded CDs of her own compositions and arrangements.
