We Singing Colors in Tokyo Subway 2017

We Singing Colors, a new-folk duo from Romania, talks about the music scene in Bucharest, political assassinations & revolution, and their Japan Tour on this episode of the podcast.  They were really fun to hang out with and I liked their music as well.  There are a couple clandestinely recorded live songs available towards the end of the podcast. Give it up for We Singing Colors!

We Singing Colors (Site) Roxanna & Andrei

In the intro I talk about bicylce scammers in Tokyo, and review a very talented beer.

MBF 56 - Royal Bravada (Rock from Milan!)

Royal Bravada is a rock n roll band touring Tokyo, and we breakdown the Milan music scene compared to the Tokyo music scene. I learned a lot! These guys play balls to the wall rock, and that's why they are this week's guest. Co-Producer Credits go out to Apryl Peredo. She can book your tour. You are just one-click away from booking your Japan Tour.

In the introduction:
I have seen and heard a lot of people talking about North Korea recentely, and possible military action. There are very complex social relationships between Japan and Korea. There are 100,000s of ethnic Koreans in Japan that fall into separate sub-groups. I deconstruct some of these sub-groups as a way to raise awareness about how the complex social relationships between China, Japan, Korea, and Russia will probably override miltary action. A little history goes a long way.  To be honest, it not a good idea to say "bomb this, they're bombing that, bomb bomb bomb!"

BTW -- I have music that you can buy.
