mondii Nature Bliss (tokyo/japan)
2011年は気付けば1年の半分以上を中国で過ごしました。なので、「ナウ」な音楽にはだいぶウトくなってしまいました。。代わりにテレサ・テンの凄さや、未知なる音にいっぱい出会えました。中国はとにかくデカくて、ヴァシティ・バニアンみたいな人もたくさんいたり、どこまで自然と調和しているんだろうって程の数々の民族音楽や舞踊、紹介したいけど路上の海賊盤CDRだったりで、身元がよく分かりません。笑その中でも、年末にセラーから貰った青葉市子さんのCD、ワン・フェイのベスト盤、itunesでドキドキしながら初めて買い物したKanding Rayの新譜が好きでした。写真は12月上旬に商談で訪れた南京の路上にて。空気が悪すぎて、寒すぎて2週間以上も風邪ひいてしまいました。その帰国直後、東京で20年ぶりの同級生に別々に2人にも会えました。だけど、それもこれも全てが夢の中みたい。そしてクリスマス、プロテスタントの教会で参加した礼拝の賛美歌を聴きながら、ようやく1年のほこりやドロドロが洗い流されたような気分に。。2012年も平和で、色んな出会いや思い出がありますように!また、flauレーベル5周年おめでとうございます!!

2011年は気付けば1年の半分以上を中国で過ごしました。
なので、「ナウ」な音楽にはだいぶウトくなってしまいました。。
代わりにテレサ・テンの凄さや、未知なる音にいっぱい出会えました。
中国はとにかくデカくて、ヴァシティ・バニアンみたいな人もたくさんいたり、
どこまで自然と調和しているんだろうって程の数々の民族音楽や舞踊、
紹介したいけど路上の海賊盤CDRだったりで、身元がよく分かりません。笑
その中でも、年末にセラーから貰った青葉市子さんのCD、ワン・フェイのベスト盤、
itunesでドキドキしながら初めて買い物したKanding Rayの新譜が好きでした。

写真は12月上旬に商談で訪れた南京の路上にて。空気が悪すぎて、寒すぎて
2週間以上も風邪ひいてしまいました。その帰国直後、東京で20年ぶりの
同級生に別々に2人にも会えました。だけど、それもこれも全てが夢の中みたい。
そしてクリスマス、プロテスタントの教会で参加した礼拝の賛美歌を聴きながら、
ようやく1年のほこりやドロドロが洗い流されたような気分に。。

2012年も平和で、色んな出会いや思い出がありますように!
また、flauレーベル5周年おめでとうございます!!
