I play music that is old and that is new. Some of it is digital while some is analog. It is from many different countries; sometimes it is loud and at other times it is quiet.

good afternoon everyone.

Here's a very interesting interview of Tsutomu Oohashi aka Shoji Yamashiro, the leader of Geinoh Yamashirogumi, written by a WFMU listener CG Watkins: www.sidianersatzvanes.com...

Hello, Polyus and JtotheK, happy to have you on board!

Listening from the laundromat today! :)
Avatar 5:13pm Mayuko:

A little sightseeing info: 恐山 is a series of mountains in Northern Japan and is an entrance to hell and heaven... this is supposedly the hell... miner8.com... and there's a bloody red pond there: blogimg.goo.ne.jp... & heaven: pds.exblog.jp... Never been there myself but both heaven and hell seems to be quite beautiful places.

That Hell pond is frightening!
Avatar 5:23pm Mayuko:

I think I heard that it's some kind of algous thing makes it red, but I'm not sure. It really is frightening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:28pm listener james from westwood:

Odd, sometimes unique species can thrive in isolated environments like that, so it's entirely possible.
Avatar 5:35pm Mayuko:

Yah, I think you're right. And there's volcanos and they say it smells so bad/strange all around there in the hell because of sulfur - with that and the red pond, people in the old times must have thought it REALLY was a place with supernatural beings or something like that.

Heya Mayuko and listeners.

I'm showing a friend how to use the WFMU app, and I'm happy your show is the demonstration.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:12pm Rich in Washington:

Ice Top rules!
Never heard of them until today! Thanks for such an amazing show, Mayuko!
Avatar 6:13pm Mayuko:

Hello, Carmichael! I'm honored to be the sample, Gaylord! I hope you're well!!!
Avatar 6:19pm Mayuko:

Thank YOU for listening, Rich in Washington! I was feeling a bit hesitated to play Mongolian hip-hop after reading this article about them on NPR www.npr.org... Because I'm not entirely sure if I want to support the message they are trying to deliver. But For this song Am Asuuy, at least I learned a bit about its context, so thought it was safe. Mongolian hiphop does look interesting though! Mixing their traditional throat singing with it etc.
Avatar 6:26pm Mayuko:

For those who can read Japanese, the super interesting article about Am Asuuy: synodos.jp... Also there's the youtube video of the song there.

Hi, Mayuko and Verts! It is sure an odd sensation that it isn't March 1 today.
Avatar 6:35pm Mayuko:

Hello, Ken from Hyde Park! Thank you for tuning in. I wish we can have an extra day every week, or at least every month like this.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm coelacanth:

greetings Mayuko and all
...unfashionably late i am; but did catch that excellent Tom Recchion track at least
Avatar 6:51pm Mayuko:

Hello, coelacanth, thank you for stopping by! You are always welcomed to walk through the wall of time and check out the archives anyway :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Rich in Washington:

is this Bjork singing?
Avatar 6:55pm Mayuko:

Yup! It's one of the her bands. Kinda make sense that I seem to remember she said she opened up a show for Einstürzende Neubauten a long time ago (if I remember correctly...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Rich in Washington:

I should track down that album. I didn't realize KUKL sounded that cool.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm listener james from westwood:

Glad to hear a bit of Bjork to wrap up. Thanks, Mayuko!!

whmm... you played another track from ザ・民謡ベストコレクション4 岩手編 while back. I ordered the CD, haven't got the CD though, looking forward to it. But am I keep buying stuff out from show?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:34pm Webhamster Henry:

Sorry I missed the live show, Mayuko! Inuit Songs and Games was among the first CDs I ever purchased!
Avatar 10:56pm Mayuko:

I did play a track from that cd indeed! So many good tracks on that one. So happy that you're digging these folk music from Japan! There's more to come!
Avatar 10:58pm Mayuko:

That's incredible, Henry, one of the very first CDs you bought?! I wonder what brought you to listen to that stuff so early. Thanks for listening!
Avatar 11:51am aliaspail:

listening now!

Thanks! Hope you enjoyed it!

What a spectacularly amazing show Mayuko!
French translation time: "avec voix chuchotee" means "with whispered voice"
I bookmarked what I found about Marewrew, which is not much I can understand, but I'll be lobbying for their coming to France. At first they had sounds reminding me of Mongolian long song, but the end was closer to Yakut, that's very interesting to me how Ainu people might share cultural traditions with Siberian and Mongolian people both
Thanks for that amazing article and for playing Geinoh Yamashirogumi. 25 years ago, I got a portable CD player for Xmas. One week later, I got mugged and that gift was gone. I had their Akira soundtrack in there, and I asked the robbers to hand the CD back to me because it was some weird Japanese stuff they wouldn't like anyway. It made so little sense that they did, so I still have that record today. They didn't even throw it out, they took it out and gave it to me before kicking me out of the train
And, of course, many many thanks for playing Byambajargal
Avatar 2:18am Mayuko:

That would be wonderful if people in France get to see Marewrew's show! I'm sure someone at their office speaks English but if there's any Japanese assistance needed, I'd be more than happy to help. I was fascinated by Ainu culture when I was a teenager, and that's how I got interested in all other northern people too. It's very interesting to see (hear) these musical gradation.

I'm glad you were ok and they gave you back Geinoh Yamashirogumi - that is kinda funny (although not really!)
