Live Report + Other Stuff

2009年 12月 12日

Hello…

Kowezhi and I have some great stuff for this week. Last night we had the opportunity to go see Grammy-winning Bela Fleck and the Flecktones alongside Alash. For those of you who don’t know, Alash is throat-singing ensemble from Tuva (a small republic in Siberia). They use traditional Tuvan instruments (similar to those found in Mongolia etc.) and throat singing. Throat singing involves manipulating the throat to create up to 4 pitches at once. You can learn more about Alash and throat singing here: http://alashensemble.com.

Here’s a lovely LQ video of them:

Anyway, we plan to write another live review for them later today!

Also, we have more jrock single reviews and jpop album reviews. We’d like to get Namie Amuro’s new album up today as well.

There are a couple more parts to the Christmas Blowout, and I’ll release those within the next two weeks.

Lastly, Kowezhi and I plan to release Best of/Worst of 2009 posts soon!

Have a great day!
