YUSASOBA has been performing throughout Japan since 2014, hoping to bring more of Japan’s soba culture to the world with the music they play. A soba-loving duo composed of soba expert, violinist and vocalist Yusa and producer and DJ Shogogo, YUSASOBA create original musical compositions in various genres, inspired by the rhythm of the soba making process.
Performing at soba shops, soba festivals, and regional revitalization events all over Japan, they aim to fuse soba and music. Some of their original songs include “Soba ni ite,” (Stay by my side) “Soba☆Rap,” “Tsukimi,” and “gensoba.”
