Accordion and Charan-Po-Rantan

Posted August 24, 2012 by martimbrandao
Categories: Folk, World Music

Charan-Po-Rantan are two sisters: an accordion player and a singer. They usually play with band “CanCan Balkan”, adding in saxophones and drums to their acts. A must listen if you like folk music.
They will have a new album out in Sept. 12.

One more song, with CanCan Balkan.

More funk (and summer festival advertising)

Do you remember my post on Zainichi Funk?
Today I bring you some more funk. Accidentally, I just found out that most of these bands are going to the next Indie Festival in Shimokitazawa this July, so if you are in Tokyo on the 1st of July, make sure to pay these concerts a visit in Indie Fan Club Shimokitazawa! (Zainichi Funk, Petrolz and Gentle Forest Jazz Band, among many others)
前の在日ファンクのブログ・ポスト覚えていますか? 今日はまたファンクのような音楽を紹介しようと思っています。それも面白いだけど、偶然に今年の7月1日の下北沢のインディーズ・フェスティバルにはほとんどこのバンドたちが演奏します。在日ファンク、ペトロールズ、GENTLE FOREST JAZZ BANDなど!なので、よかったら是非行ってみてください。こっちは必ず行きますよ。詳しくはIndie Fan Club Shimokitazawa

Petrolz is worth a good listen. Vocal, bass and drums, here on a live performance which is part of the SLEEPERS FILM project, one in the same fashion as the famous TAKE AWAY SHOWS.

Although this Big Band band is a bit unrelated to the title, Zainichi Funk’s trumpeter also plays in it and it is DEFINATELY worth a listen. Here is a funny video from Gentle Forest Jazz Band.
下記にUPされているビデオは「GENTLE FOREST JAZZ BAND」の面白いビデオの一つ。このバンドはビックバンドで、カッコウよくて独創性があると思います!トランペットを吹いている人は在日ファンクのメンバーにもいます。

SAKEROCK is Zainichi Funk’s Kenta Hamano’s other band. Generally more famous than the former, however. Mostly instrumental, awesomely cool.

Shiina Ringo (I)

Shiina Ringo is the real deal, a japanese bomb. You can find her doing jazz, punk rock, experimental, big band, both solo and on the “Tokyo Jihen” band as well… she’s all over the place. Today we show her “classical” side with some of her jazz and orchestral projects.
「椎名 林檎」の音楽が爆弾。ジャズやパンクロックや実験的な音楽などこの人はソロでも「東京事変」というバンドとも結構やってみたことがないジャンルがあまりない気がする。今回は彼女のもっとクラシック面を聴いてみましょう。
