Minyo Crusaders

Minyo Crusaders has been played on NTS shows including Groovy Doobie do♬ w/ Yuka Mizuhara, with おてもやん = Otemoyan first played on 7 January 2020.

Minyo Crusaders rework historic Japanese folk songs (min'yō) with Latin, African, Caribbean and Asian rhythms on their debut album “Echoes of Japan”. A big band like no other, where distinctive min'yō vocals glide over grooves that join the dots between cumbia, Ethiopian jazz, Thai pop, Afro funk and reggae.

In the late 90s Katsumi Tanaka moved to Fussa, a city in western Tokyo steeped in counter-culture folklore as the home of Eiichi Ohtaki of Japanese rock band Happy End….
