Samurai was a progressive rock outfit formed by singer Miki Curtis from the ashes of his Group Sounds outfit The Samurais. Always a chancer, Curtis cleverly hired two Engish rock musicians and future Free bass player Tetsu Yamauchi, thereafter recording two albums with this ensemble entitled GREEN TEA (1970) and KAPPA (1971).
