Asa-Chang & Junray (Japan) LIVE | The Leaf Label
Valerio Tricoli & Hanno Leichtmann (IT/DE) LIVE | PAN / Karaoke Kalk
Decks: Frank D' Arpino | Salon des Amateurs
Based in Tokyo, self-taught tabla guru Asa-Chang spends his professional life touring with multi-million-selling J-pop acts — groups that make S Club 7 sound like Joy Division. Regarded as Japan's premier session percussionist, in his spare time this loveable eccentric makes music that might just blow your head off. Asa-Chang & Junray is the name of the Asa-Chang experience, and comes from the 'Jun-Ray Tronics' soundsystem he uses. The word also means 'pilgrimage' — Asa-Chang is on a mission to take music to places it's never been.
