Donft forgetc.. This mysterious and imperative outcry
is a call from one of the most beautiful spots on
this earth, the Okinawan Islands.
It reminds us to embrace tradition and take it with
us into the future, here beautifully represented in
a unique collaboration between Dutch soundscape artist
Pascal Plantinga and the godfather of Okinawan pop,
Washinnayo comes spectacularly packaged
in a deluxe gatefold sleeve designed by interdisciplinary
artist Toyoko Shimada. Her graceful Golden Dragon
juxtaposes high-tech and ecology in times of tradition
A juxtaposition also found in the music, where Pascal
Plantingafs sparse arrangements featuring bass, electronics
and field recordings provide the perfect pedestal
for Shoukichi Kinafs sanshin (the ubiquitous three-stringed
Okinawan instrument) and voice, presented here at
its most expressive and emotional.
4 tracks: 2 x 7" vinyl + Mini-CD,
* Deluxe embossed gatefold sleeve.
* Edition: Limited 500 copies.
Known throughout Japan for the two greatest hits
ever to originate in Okinawa, Haisai Ojisan,
and the million-selling song Hana, Shoukichi
Kina never lost his appeal as rebellious outsider
and his special blend of rock and Okinawan folk
proved a great vehicle for his musical activism
and involvement in peace activities.
However, frustrated with his inability to realize
his dreams of a peaceful, borderless world as a
rock star, Kina took his campaign slogan gExchange
All Weapons For Musical Instrumentsh into the political
arena and joined the Democratic Party of Japan.
And making no distinction between politics and music,
Kina just as easily swaps his political activities
for his intense live performances.
Plantinga is an electro-songwriter who couples
experimentation with a singular way of musical storytelling.
His long-standing working relationship with German
electronic music pioneer Pyrolator lends Pascalfs
music its strong cinematographic touch. The range
of avant-garde artists Pascal has recorded and performed
with over the years include Gary Lucas, Guy Klucevsek,
Haco, Hauschka and Martin Bisi.
Pascal has also been composing music for television
shows and created the score for the award-winning
feature film 170 Hz.
His deep devotion for the culture of the subtropical
islands of Okinawa has led to this record, featuring
some of the most profound Okinawan folk songs, recorded
during a typhoon- ridden night at Shoukichi Kinafs
studio in Naha, Okinawa.
