SORGENTI is composed of two brothers from Yamaguchi Prefecture, Japan. Mitsuhiro composes the music and his younger brother, Hiroshi, writes the lyrics. The name of the group is Italian for gushing spring, to be interpreted as creating and delivering music to each and every person’s heart.
They created SORGENTI in 2007 and built up their career and fan base from their hometown. In January 2011, they released their first titles with a major and their debut live was very successful. After their debut, most of their releases ranked in the Top 100 of Japanese music and music store charts.
In December 2014, SORGENTI was appointed Yamaguchi Hometown Ambassador and their title ALL OUT -Future Heritage- was selected as Yamaguchi Rugby Association’s cheering song. Then, they started to expand in the Asian market, participating in events in Taipei in 2015, in Thailand since 2016, and in Malaysia in 2019.
In 2018, the song MUGETSU has been picked up by the Japanese professional baseball team called Yomiuri Giants as their anthem. Their song Hototogisu was also nominated as the Japanese baseball team’s anthem in the World Baseball Classic.
Lately, SORGENTI is trying to share their blend of Japanese J-pop and traditional music – which they call WA-pop – and performances all over the world.
