Mutsumi Aragaki Live in the Studio, 2nd October 2019

Mutsumi Aragaki Live in the Studio, 2nd October 2019

Chart positions

This show was 31st in the global folk chart, 92nd in the global world chart and 97th in the global ambient chart.

I've been following the career of Okinawan musician Mutsumi Aragaki for several years now. It's been inspiring to hear her develop her music with such a passion, open mindedness and bravery, in developing Okinawan traditional music, respecting the past masters, yet taking the music in totally new directions. It was therefore an honour and a pleasure to welcome her to the Resonance Studio. She enchanted us with her live studio performance, and listening to a track from her forthcoming and long anticipated solo album. Also featured music featuring her collaborator while in London, Mina, a track for October by the Boom, and the legend that was Hibari Misora.

Paul, I listened to this interview with Mutsumi Aragaki with great interest and delight. Through you, I became acquainted with her and decided to invite her to join a recording project of mine that I probably spoke to you about when we last me, Atmospheres - A Mother Tongue Project. She graciously accepted and is now featured on one piece called Stratosphere. She is absolutely a perfect match for this project. Though I know that you weren’t involved in that convergence directly, I thank you for presenting her to your listeners.
