Under this moniker the band released 3 albums between 1988 and 1993 and then went silent as a group for 10 years. Asturias has morphed into 3 bands – Acoustic Asturias and Electric Asturias and Multi Asturias but in all iterations remain a band inspired by the music of Mike Oldfield and Gong.
Asturias leader Yoh Ohyama was born in Tokyo in 1962. His father was a painter who produced the cover art for Asturias albums. Ohyama’s first encounter with progressive rock dates back to 1976 when he heard Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells. After performing in an amateur band he found a position at a recording studio run by Haruhiko Tsuda of Shingetsu, which gave him an opportunity to acquire skills in professional music production. He eventually left the studio and has since built a long-standing career as independent composer, arranger, producer, and recording engineer.
