Zuntata is Taito Corporation's "house band" composed of Taito developers. The members include Hisayoshi Ogura (OGR), Tamayo Kawamoto, Masahiko Takaki (Mar.), Norihiro Furukawa, Yasuhisa Watanabe (Yack), Shuichiro Nakazawa (SHU), Kazuko Umino (KARU), Tomohito Takahashi, Munehiro Nakanishi, and Katsuhisa Ishikawa. Zuntata was founded by Hisayoshi Ogura.

They are known in part for the soundtrack of games like Bubble Bobble, the Darius series and the Ray series (RayForce, Raystorm and Raycrisis), among others. Stylistically, their sound is at times reminiscent of progressive/fusion artists like Return to Forever or early synthpop artists such as Yellow Magic Orchestra.

In 2006, one of the members, Tamayo Kawamoto, left Zuntata and founded the band Betta Flash together with the singer Cyua. Tamayo and Cyua formerly worked together for a track on the Ray'z Premium Box called "Ray'z - Beyond -".
