[music video] illion – Mahoroba
“Mahoroba” of the song. It is also the name in Japanese of a far away land full of mysteries and bliss. A safe haven.
This is as old as last year. But it ages well, and it is something that I should have posted and get excited about provided I had that blog at the time it was released. The song is performed by illion (website). The track is taken from the album Ubu released in 2013.
illion is the solo project from Japanese singer Yojiro Noda, also frontman and lead vocals of the band Radwimps (website) which is huge in Japan.
I love Radwimps, but what Yojiro Noda in illion is to push music in a new domain, and that’s how he earned my respect as a musician.
This is the first Japanese band/singer I’m posting on this blog, and I guess that’s the person that I would want people to check out first if they wanted to discover Japanese music.
