about

It is commonly said in Japan that when one dies, that person becomes a star. It was reported that the night of the Great Eastern Earthquake and Tsunami of 2011, the clear skies were filled with beautiful bright stars. Inspired by the courage of the communities rebuilding after this natural disaster, Otonowa pays tribute through the musical traditions of Japan and the expressions of jazz. This second recording for Otonowa builds on a catalog of original compositions and new arrangements of traditional Japanese melodies.
