Interview with Shota Nakama of the Videogame Orchestra

(Video Game Orchestra segment starts around the 39:00 mark)

Founded by Japanese born guitarist Shota Nakama, VGO came to be from Nakama's greatest passions in life, live performance and video games, and the belief that their worlds could not only be combined, but that new life could be brought to the endearing classics that fans for years have heard in the background of their favorite video games.

VGO is comprised by a group of the very best of Boston based musicians, both young and established talents alike, as well as individuals from around the world. VGO does not limit itself to being a strictly classical orchestra and choir, uniquely integrating a rock band ensemble into their group to bring true innovation to their multi­cultural sound­scape, and ensuring the most diverse takes on many classics of video game music.
