- Fishmans is a very unique and distinctive band in Japan. Their music is influenced by reggae, dub and rocksteady. They blend elements of rock, funk and hip hop as well. The result is very special and the sounds are uniquely hybrid.

Lead singer Shinji Sato was the group’s principal songwriter and he was an amazing front man and vocalist like no other, but he unfortunately passed away in 1999.

After his death many famous artists in Japan covered their signature song ‘Ikareta Baby’ and many other musicians, creators and listener’s of new generations keep loving their music now in the 21st century.

Kin-ichi Motegi as an original band member and the current drummer of Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra has been playing the songs made by Shinji Sato.

Fishmans’ music is spread inside and outside of Japan and gains more new fans through music video distribution and subscription services.

As a result of growing popularity, a 172 minute long documentary film “Movie : Fishmans” was made after being crowdfunded and it will be released in Japan from the 9th of July.
