Biography

(1998 – present)

Kobukuro (コブクロ) is a Japanese Folk band signed up to Warner Music Japan. They were formed in 1998, and debuted in 1999 as an indies artist. ‘Kobukuro’ is a Portmanteau between their names; Kobuchi Kentarou and Kuroda Shunsuke. Their first indies album, Saturday 8:PM, reached #1 on the HMV Indies Chart, while their next, Root of my mind, reached #2.

They were later signed up to Warner Music Japan in 2001, and debuted in March with the single Yell, which reached #4 on Oricon charts. Though they steadily climbed in fame and sucess, their major break through single was Koko ni Shika Sakanai Hana in 2005, which was used as the theme song to the dorama Ruri no Shima. It was so sucessful that it became the #15 single of the year. Their next single Sakura also continued on with the extreme sucess that they had gained, reaching #61 on the 2005 yearly charts yet still charting highly throughout 2006.
