The Amami island female duo seem to have been around for ages, but this is their first full album as opposed to their excellent mini-albums. One of the albums of 2004, with the two women in great voice and playing sanshin, accompanied by acoustic and lapsteel guitars, ukulele, violin, percussion and flute. The songs ebb and flow with Marica and Mizki's strong voices adding piercing, falsetto tones together with their britle, crisp sanshin. The album is recorded with a live feel to it, with little studio effects and no hint of electronic help, being totally acoustic. 12 tracks of beauty and vitality.
