Around the world in 8 songs

Country: Japan

Tommy Heavenly6

Song: Monocrome Rainbow

I first stumbled upon the Japanese songtress on youtube a few years ago. I’ve liked jrock and she is one of my favorite japanese rock artists. People call her the Avril Lavigne of Japan but to be quite honest I much prefer her and seeing as how is much older than Avril I don’t think the comparison quite fits. Tommu Heavenly6 always has a darker theme to her videos but this one differs quite a bit from her older work. There are no flying bats, no spooky sounds, just her and her band jamming out.

Country: Peru

Artist: Cesar Paucar

Song: Frantic Festejo

From a concert in Lima Peru on Oct. 16, 2007, Cesar Paucar performs “Frantic Festejo” from his CD “De amanecida” (At Dawn’s Door). It is a jazz approach to Peruvian music, where guitar and percussion engage in a dialog. Cajon player: Julio Tirado.

Country: Korea

Artist: Seo In Yong

Song: Anymore

Seo In Yong is a Korean pop artist who used to be part of the group Jewlery. She has a reputation for being a bit high maintenance but that aside the girl can sing, especially live. Anymore, her more recent song, is not my favorite but it is catchy.
