Takashi Ochi came to Germany in the 70s, I think he was the first Japanese mandolin player who was Gunter Krieger* to germany. He played with the German Zupforchestra under Siegfried Behrend. He decided to stay in Germany and was for many years one of the leading mandolin players in Germany. I have met To Catch Me A Brother - Caravan - Dos Ochi several times and had also some lessons while I was learning conducting at the Bundesakademie in Trossingen.
I could also play with him in the Deutsches Zupforchester and in the Badisches Zupforchester. Takashi is a very friendly person, and it has alwas been a joy to meet him.
