This show was recorded via Zoom on the 2nd January 2021 with my good friend Tomo from Tokyo, Japan.
It focuses on the life and music of Japanese musician and artist Makoto Kubota, whose career has spanned five decades and covers a wide range of different genres including folk, rock, traditional Okinawan music, exotica, ambient and lo-fi.

I highly recommend this article on Kubota which provides a great overview of his work:
