Life is full of surprises. I have a new crush and her name is Ikue Asazaki, a marvelous folk singer from Kedomi in the Amami Isands.
I discovered her this morning because of the Kuniyuki Takahashi remix herebelow.
She's known for her traditional Amami Shimauta (folk song) performances and travels the world to interpret them.
"Yoisura Bushi" is a traditional Amami Island song. It's actually a prayer for the sailors' safety.
It's released on Volkuta Records, which aim is to introduce the traditional japanese songs in the original form and remixed.
