Satoko Fujii 60th Birthday Releses

Satoko Fujii 60th"Hello friends I will be 60 years old in this year, 2018. In Japan we have a special word for the 60th birthday - kanreki - and we celebrate it. I decided to celebrate my kanreki by releasing one CD every month, for a total 12 CDs in 2018. I know this is a crazy idea, but I want to do something very special. Thank you so much!! All my best — Satoko"
