Stomu Yamashta (or Yamash'ta), born Tsutomu Yamashita (山下勉 Yamashita Tsutomu, 15 March 1947), is a Japanese percussionist, keyboardist and composer. He is best known for pioneering and popularising a fusion of traditional Japanese percussive music with Western progressive rock music in the 1960s and 1970s. In the latter part of the 1970s, he led the supergroup "Go" with Steve Winwood, Al Di Meola, Klaus Schulze, and Michael Shrieve.

Stomu Yamashta is a Japanese percussionist and, as everyone has said, one of jazz-rock pioneers all over the world. This 'Raindog' is his fifth album from Island Records, faithfully re-produced with the 'Raindog' event in London - after his previous band East Wind breaking out. The quality and activity of this album can notify us that Stomu would not be depressive in the disbandment and would be still positive for music and creation. The first track Dunes has jazzy and speedy percussive sounds tinged with slight psychedelic or spacey flavour. His wife's violin is very.

CD - Universal Distribution. Stomu Yamashta was closely connected to the acting world, composing music for the Parisian Red Buddha Theater group, pieces which were transformed into his debut Red Buddha album, and for cinema - his soundtrack for the film One on One was recorded and released as his band East Wind's second album. Raindog, the band's follow-up, began life as a multimedia event held at London's Roundhouse in 1975, featuring the Red Buddha players as well as a number of British actors.
