The first release by the new Nenes, following the departure of all their former singers. The quartet this time are much younger. While the originals had already served their apprenticeship in the min'yo clubs, the new Nenes learnt by 'on the job' training in their own 'Shima Uta' bar. On this album they are accompanied by other young musicians, including Sadao China's son. The reggae and pop influences are still combined cleverly with more traditional elements, but at the moment the women's voice are nowhere near as evolved, or as beautiful, as the Nenes you might know. Nevertheless, it's a good start.
