"My name is GOH. I am a bicultural traveler with an amplified-guitar-voice that simply moves; our path = compose life. Welcome!" -GOH ;)
Acoustically, Goh embraces a single guitar to create drum beats, percussive grooves, bass lines, and memorable melodies all at the same time. As an electric 'pedalist' guitarist he tweaks, bends, and twists soundscapes. Emphasizing honest musical emotions, his original compositions/arrangements are influenced by everything from folk and classical music to Paco de Lucia (flamenco), Western jazz-genres, Jeff Beck, and heavy metal (hard rock). Goh tours Japan and the US West Coast regularly, and his itinerary include festival dates and school workshops in Taiwan, Mexico, Canada, and Brazil.
Scott Yanow (journalist for AllMusic & LA Jazz Scene) expresses: "Goh Kurosawa's music is beyond any simple classification. The guitarist improvises melodically, is open to the influences of pop, rock, flamenco, classical, Latin and Japanese music, and has his own musical identity. Equally skilled on electric and acoustic guitars, he has mastered tapping and sometimes uses electrical devices to create a wide range of sounds yet is not shy to embrace a pretty melody; personable and eager to talk about his music and guitar tunings between songs, Goh put on a warm and entertaining show. His set included Bob Marley's No Women No Cry, My Family My Friends (original), a Japanese folk song, Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah (which he sang) and parts of a suite he recently composed."
In 2013 in The City of Angels, Goh with his colleagues launched BRILLIANT STRINGS. The world-class monthly series is open to all ages. Performers include master musicians, global instrumentalists, live painters, creative dancers, and Grammy winners/nominees. To catch the next installment, go to BrilliantStrings.org.
