1970 japanese prog psych masterpiece!

Samurai is a seventies progressive rock band. Members of this band moved from Japan to England and they added several english musicians as well to create full line-up. They recorded 2 albums: "Samurai"(also known as "Green Tea")(1970) and "Kappa"(1971). They played interesting mix of heavy prog a la Deep Purple with lots of Japanese folk infuences (like using traditional asian instruments) + late 60' psychedelia. Their leader was Miki Curtis (it's Japanese guy, only name is british...) who seems to be quite popular pop singer in the 60' in Japan and nowadays he's an actor."
