Sample The Album:

Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"Voices and songs, full of vitality, earnest, "dotsukiai"!! The exchanges, which are intense and complacent with each other, develop into developments that no one can anticipate. It's like getting lost in a fantasy world. Exactly bare music that each cultivated experience was put out on the whole surface. Somewhat nostalgic and full of playfulness, indigenous people's progressive jazz improvisation "Doseki Uta"!!

This CD is the best selection of songs from live multi-recordings held from 2021 to 2023. Furthermore, as a bonus track, an edited song that chopped up unused sound sources is added to the main volume."-Magibutsu"

Limited edition of 200 copies.
