Playing tracks by
Asakawa Maki and Maki.
This was a mix I made for the year anniversary of the passing of Maki Asawaka. I had the privilege of seeing her live, one year before her passing. Nearly all the records that I love of hers are from the 70s and I was afraid that seeing her in her later years might be a disappointment. However, she was perhaps darker and even more "avant garde" ... it was totally dark and minimal and I couldn't wait to see her again...
Maki was an incredibly interesting character and surrounded herself with the best musicians and artists of her time.
Hope to share this with as many people who might enjoy it..in her memory...pass it along if you dig on it.

(oh, and this mix was even graciously tweeted by Gilles Peterson at the time. .ha)
