Radio Wira Wiri special #9: Junko Ueda

At WOMEX 2022 in Lisbon I saw a great showcase of PoiL Ueda, a collaboration with the French progrock band and the Japanese satsuma-biwa player, presenting Japanese traditional story telling and shomyo Buddhist chant. Two opposite styles of music, but Junko explained that the French band and her have something in common, which makes it very natural. Listen to the music of PoiL Ueda, some solo pieces, and her collaboration with Wil Offermans and Jean Claude Eloy.
