Herb "Ohta-san" Ohta, internationally renowned musician, began playing the ukulele when he was only 7 years old. Influenced greatly by Hawaiian `ukulele virtuoso Eddie Kamae, this exceptional musician has elevated the `ukulele from an accompaniment solo instrument status. He extends his love of the `ukulele from Hawaiian music to classical, jazz, rock, pop, and Latin music as well. Ohta-san's diversity and style reflect his lyrical sense and is respected as the height of ukulele artistry. He is the only known master of the `ukulele to have over 6,000 tunes performed in concert and he has recorded on Decca, Warner Bros., Polydor, JVC Victor, M&H Hawaii and many others.

With over 100 albums to his credit, Ohta-san continues to fascinate his fans in the United States, Japan, Canada, France, Australia, Mexico, Brazil and beyond. His 1976 hit, "Song for Anna" (composed by famed French composer and conductor Andre Popp), has sold over 200,000 copies throughout the world.

Ohta-san's style is expressive and unique, with serene, gentle melodies.
