DESCRIPTION
Norakuro Band

Original caption: "Norakuro Band. This is called a harmonica band although harmonicas are augmented by an equal number of other instruments. The organization, including the name, is patterned after Borrah Minnevitch's Harmonica Rascals. The band plays for center dances and is very popular. They play both American and Japanese music, often putting Japanese lyrics to American music. Roy Matsunaga, right, with baton, formerly of Portland, Oregon is leader."
