Nihongaku Radio Episode 36: The Beautiful Red Sky

What’s this!? Another episode? Sure enough. Consider this my apology for being a bit slow with new episodes as of late. I hope that after episode 35, you’re still in the mood for a ton of new Japanese music. We’ll hear from Noanowa, Negoto, and The Band Apart.

But what I’m really excited about is a Q&A session with akai SKY, a J-Rock band from right here in the United States. We’ll also hear three tracks from akai Sky in our third set. Then we’ll end the show with three tracks hand-picked by akai Sky—and they picked some great ones. Stick around!
