Contemporary jazz fuses with traditional Japanese music in the band Hiroshima, which will play Thursday night at Centennial Terrace in Sylvania.

The seven-person band was formed in 1974 in Los Angeles and has recorded 15 albums, including the 2009 release, "Legacy," which featured updated recordings of songs from their first decade.

Hiroshima combines synthesizers, traditional Japanese instruments such as the koto, and world beats in a mix that transcends mainstream jazz, but that also has achieved a high level of global popularity.

Music begins at 8 p.m. at the show presented by the Art Tatum Jazz Heritage Society. Opening act will be Toledo's Jesse Coleman and the Jamm Band. Centennial Terrace is at 5773 Centennial Road; gates open at 7.

For every ticket purchased at Harold Jaffe Jewelers, 4217 Talmadge Road, a contribution will be given to the Art Tatum Jazz Heritage Society. General admission tickets are $30 and VIP seating is $40.
