On request, today we find special music from Japan.
Michio Miyagi was a famous koto player who lived
from april 7, 1894 to june 25, 1956. We find this 10″
record on Victor, His Master’s Voice, LR-520 from 1958.
Michio Miyagi was blind from his eighth year. Since all
liner notes come in Japanese, I used the Shazam-app
to find the titles of this little album. Only the fourth
came out without result. Listen to Michio Miyagi ..
I was asked by blog friend Pete if, since this is the Global Groove,
I could post some music from China or Japan. So far there was one
Chinese post, but nothing from Japan. This is a cd from 1994 on the
wonderful Luaka Bop label of David Byrne. Shoukichi Kina, born 1948,
is in the popscene since 1977 and made a bunch of albums. This Best
off Shoukichi Kina covers 14 tracks in various styles.
