Amaterasu 天照 - Bando Tomasaburo V & Kodo

Kabuki onnagata Tomasaburo and taiko drumming group Kodo collaborate in a retelling of the myth (good story, short read) of Amaterasu-ōmikami and her brother Susano-O. The scene is Takachiho in Miyazaki Prefecture. Six 10 minute segments.

Amaterasu (Amaterasu-ōmikami, 天照大神, “Great Divinity Illuminating Heaven”) is a part of the Japanese myth cycle, the sun goddess, sister of Susano-O, the god of storms and the sea, and of Tsukuyomi, the god of the moon and ruler of the night, and a major deity of the Shinto religion from whom the Japanese imperial family claims direct descent.

Cesaria Evora – Besame Mucho



More Sufjan Stevens. Here’s the “Mercury” lyric video from the upcoming Planetarium album.


A meek melody, I didn’t quite like at first. I feel now that I do it better justice by sharing it:


I found about this project some time ago. I’ve since loved the concept, the locations, and the voices


Little on the rough side. Good rhythms though.

Shakira - Hips Don’t Lie (Spanish Version) (single)


Shakira, in the old days, she used to be more into rock and other musical genres.

Not as criticism to her career (which is quite prolific), but I bid you to compare the lyrics of her songs then and now.

In all fairness, I actually like this one as well
