What does Japanese Minyo (folk music) have in common with Chicago Blues?
Both musical forms are deeply rooted in people's souls and grew from their everyday life experience. Some songs are about hard labor, some are about crying for lost love, some are about paying the rent. You will be surprised to hear music from these two very different cultures meld together to create a new cross-border root music.
