Album Review

Yamasuki – Le Monde Fabuleux Des Yamasuki (Finders Keepers)

shiroi   4/3/2007   A Library

A multi cultural psychedelic rock opera with major youth oriented choral arrangements. Japanese gagaku style whoops abound in places such as track 1, “Yamasuki.” My other favorites are the quaint and charming “Aisere I Love You” and the fun, lively “Abana Bakana.” A concept album conceived by 2 French producers, based on the “Yamasuki” dance, originally sometimes used as an educational tool for French students to learn Japanese. Pounding drum patterns, vibes and fuzz guitar, with beauty in the sung youthful vocals. “Kono Samourai” and “Yama Yama” have been sampled for rap tunes. A unique combination for fun and artistic listening. -Shiroi
