hello, now Japan again!
The Melting Vegitable Spot vol.4 will feature Shakuhachi!!
Do you know shakuhachi,its a Japanese Falk Instrument,made out of Bamboo!
So now I invited Japanese group Fujin Raijin!
March 2008, shock since its debut in New York, the East Village, at Drom, the activity center to live at home and abroad. Specific instrument configuration of djembe and shakuhachi is also a feature, but characteristic of the Fujin Raijin comes down to the live performance. Rock from classic to Japan, playing energetic song by pictorial idea rather than a genre based on jazz improvisation. Develop activities in the live house, etc. from all over Japan since its debut in New York. February 2010, released the 1st album <Africa>
