Today I played with the Kariyushi Band. They came from Yoron Island for a big concert in Hibiya Kokaido on the 23rd and unfortunately I couldn’t participate in that but they were playing in a private party today which I was able to tale part in. I was given a lot of power from them in Yoron and it felt strange to meet again in Tokyo. There music is different from what I normally play but I don’t know why but there music fills my heart more than when I am playing Jazz. It has such a strong massage. Having a strong feeling for where they are from the beautiful nature must give that strength. Today was in Ginza and at the beginning all the audience were listing with a still face but after every song the smiles increases and by the end the whole club was will with happy faces. It even felt like we were all a big family. I think this was a necessary experience for me. Thank you so much for this wonderful encounter!
